India Surgical Gloves Market– Impact of Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic

The abrupt COVID-19 pandemic outbreak in the nation originally had a detrimental effect on market for medical gloves in India. There has been an increase in demand for medical gloves among both the general public and healthcare professionals as a result of the current COVID-19 scenario and the health hazards it entails.

As a result of a massive demand and supply mismatch caused by frontline healthcare workers' overwhelming desire for gloves, medical-grade gloves were severely in short supply in healthcare facilities. However, as they increased production capabilities to meet the rising demand for medical gloves on the domestic market, the manufacturers swiftly emerged from this depression.

India Surgical Gloves Market: Restraint

The major factors that hinder growth of the India surgical gloves market include adverse effects associated with the use of surgical gloves. Direct contact with natural latex rubber in latex gloves can cause dermatitis. Potential allergic reactions from the latex gloves may include hives, itching, stuffy or runny nose, scratchy throat, etc. The most serious allergic reaction to latex is anaphylaxis, which can be deadly. An anaphylactic reaction develops immediately after latex exposure in highly sensitive people, but it rarely happens the first time one is exposed. For instance, in December 2014, the U.S. FDA recommended to label the medical products mentioning if it is made from natural rubber latex. If patient is allergic to the natural rubber latex, healthcare professional or care giver should choose gloves made from other synthetic materials.

Key Players

Key players operating in market include SARAHEALTH CARE, MRK Healthcare Pvt. Ltd., Amkay Products Pvt. Ltd., JIT & JIT, Kanam Latex Industries Pvt. Ltd., RFB Latex Limited, Safeshield Gloves, Amigo Surgicare Pvt. Ltd., Asma Rubber Products Pvt.

Sterile surgical gloves are worn by surgeons and other healthcare professionals during surgical procedures. These surgical gloves act as a barrier to avoid contamination, infection, and entry of microorganisms and bacteria during surgical procedures. Nitrile is a synthetic rubber made of butadiene and acrylonitrile. It is an excellent material for developing surgical gloves because of its resistance to temperature changes, durability, and strength, especially for those with latex allergies. Various advantages offered by nitrile surgical gloves are expected to drive the segment growth over the forecast period. For instance, nitrile gloves are preferred by many surgeons due to their extreme durability and puncture resistance. Moreover, nitrile surgical gloves have a longer shelf life than latex and vinyl varieties. As nitrile gloves last longer, they can be stored more efficiently. During medical operations and examinations, personal protection equipment such as surgical gloves are used to shield the user and/or the patient from the transmission of infection or illness. To help minimize cross-contamination between caregivers and patients during medical examinations and procedures, medical gloves are disposable gloves. Exam gloves, surgical gloves, and medical gloves for handling chemotherapeutic drugs are some of the disposable options available (chemotherapy gloves). Medical professionals like doctors, surgeons, nurses, lab technicians, dentists, and dental assistants are the ones who use them the most.

Key players operating in market are expected to drive the market growth during the forecast period, owing to increased launches of surgical gloves over the forecast period.
