Technavio analysts highlight the following three factors that are contributing to the growth of the global cut-resistant gloves market:

Increasing emphasis on glove safety standards

Manufacturers are emphasizing on the safety standards set by different countries. There are two different global performance standards for determining cut-resistance. First one is EN38, which is used in Europe, APAC, South America, Mexico and certain parts of Canada. The second one, ANSI/ISEA 105 standard, is mainly used in North America.

Sayani Roy, a lead research analyst at Technavio, says, “The emphasis on these standards is growing, and manufacturers such as Ansell, Honeywell, 3M, and Kimberly-Clark provide gloves that adhere to these standards. Workers are becoming more aware of safety standards, which will impact the demand for cut-resistant gloves. Working professionals will demand gloves that comply with safety standards to ensure optimum hand protection during industrial activities.”

Robust increase in rubber production

Rubber, one of the main raw materials for gloves, is directly affected by the growth in production. As per the Malaysian Rubber Glove Manufacturers Association, the revenue generated from exports is expected to reach USD 3.22 billion in 2016. Malaysia holds a share of over 60% in the rubber glove producer market. “The demand for rubber gloves is primarily driven by the healthcare market. This demand and global increase in the production of rubber will drive the global cut-resistant gloves market during the forecast period,” adds Sayani.

Growth in end-user industries

The growth of various end-user segments like manufacturing, chemicals, construction, mining, and metal fabrication has driven the growth of the global cut-resistant gloves market. These industries are adopting measures to ensure worker safety and prevent accidents in the workplace. It was found that every 15 seconds, 153 workers encounter a work-related accident.

As per the International Monetary Fund, the manufacturing output globally will grow from 3.1% in 2016 to 3.4% in 2017, with a slow growth rate in advanced economies in North America and Europe. In developing regions such as India and China, the manufacturing segment is expected to grow at an accelerated rate. Many activities in the manufacturing industry require the use of PPE to protect the workers from any hazards.
