The usage of industrial gloves across several operations in these industries is ruled primarily by worker safety mandates instigated by government and private bodies. While employee safety rules have traditionally been much stricter and were adhered to more strictly in developed regions than in cost-conscious developing regions, the scenario is rapidly changing.

Transparency Market Research analysts state that the market for industrial gloves will expand at the fastest CAGR of nearly 12% in Asia Pacific over the forecasting horizon. The factors driving the increased usage of industrial gloves in the region will chiefly be the increasingly stringent worker safety guidelines, rising awareness among employees about the health benefits of high-quality gloves, and flourishing growth of key end use industries.

The lucrative growth opportunities in the global industrial gloves market has attracted a large number of small-, medium-, and large-sized vendors operating across a variety of product segments and serving several regional markets. While some international players are known for the high-quality of their products, they are also infamous for the high costs of their offerings. High costs of products from international vendors mostly fail to appeal cost-conscious industries, especially located in emerging economies.
The threat of being replaced by locally manufactured, cheaper varieties of industrial gloves across the highly lucrative developing economies is a big loss for international vendors. Expanding their consumer base in lucrative regional pockets will require global vendors to focus on establishing production bases in the target regions, where low raw materials and labor costs will help keep product prices in check. Attempts at improving the level of awareness among workers and employers regarding the several benefits of use of industrial gloves could also help strengthen the positions in regional markets.
