Disposable Gloves Competition Status and Development Trend (Part 1)

Aug. 14, 2020 | 15:41:57

Disposable gloves are divided into latex gloves, nitrile gloves, PVC gloves and PE gloves according to their materials. In recent years, with the attention and strengthening of health care work, the amount of gloves has increased rapidly, especially the more convenient and functional PVC gloves and nitrile gloves. With the progress of chemical technology and the gradual improvement of industrial supporting facilities, as well as the continuous application of new additives, the large-scale production process of nitrile gloves and PVC gloves has matured day by day. With the advantage of sufficient raw material supply and other advantages, it has developed rapidly, and continues to squeeze latex gloves. market share.

This article mainly summarizes the competition status and development trend of the nitrile gloves and PVC gloves industry.

Performance characteristics and product development trends of disposable gloves

Latex gloves, nitrile gloves, and PVC gloves have stable quality, good protection, and a wide range of applications, occupying most of the market share, especially in the field of medical examination and medical care. They are extremely effective for their germ isolation and comfortable wearing characteristics. Highly respected.

PVC gloves are disposable fast-moving consumer goods, with excellent characteristics such as non-toxic, odorless, waterproof, acid and alkali resistance, and oil resistance. They are widely used in medical inspection, medical care, laboratories, electronic product processing, food processing, fast food services and other fields.

Nitrile gloves are processed with nitrile butadiene latex and other additives. No protein, no allergic reaction to human skin, no irritation, no smell, no toxicity, strong, durable, good ductility, good hand feeling, fine lines on the surface (easy to grasp), can resist various chemical substances and oil stains, prevent The penetration of bacteria and viruses has good anti-static performance and anti-wear and anti-puncture capabilities. It is widely used in medical inspection, industrial protection, housework and other fields.

Although the price of PE gloves is low, they have disadvantages such as poor flexibility, easy to break, and affect operation after being worn. They are low-end products, mainly used in the catering field, and have a limited market share.

The current consumers of medical-grade gloves are mainly concentrated in industrialized countries such as the United States, Europe, and Japan. They are widely used in medical examinations and nursing care. With the increasing level of domestic consumption, the medical industry has begun to pay more attention to the importance of wearing gloves. The consumption is on the rise.

Transfer of new materials such as nitrile gloves. Today, although the main consumers of PVC and nitrile medical examination gloves are still mainly concentrated in developed countries such as Europe, the United States, and Japan, they are gradually expanding to emerging markets in the Middle East and South America at a relatively rapid rate. Therefore, the market share of Disposable PVC gloves and nitrile gloves will further increase.

Nitrile gloves are mainly used in high-end medical inspection, electronic processing, pharmaceutical and other industries. Since customers choose nitrile gloves itself means higher requirements for quality, the market and living space of low-end J nitrile gloves are shrinking, and its production and sales are gradually concentrated on high-end products.

The production technology of nitrile gloves has been updated rapidly in recent years. The new production technology represented by the one-sided two-hand mold process has greatly improved the production efficiency, and has also given new entrants a clear advantage in late development. At the same time, since the single-line input cost of Nitrile Gloves Equipment is much higher than that of PVC gloves, and there are fewer professional employees, the capital and technical threshold of the nitrile glove industry is relatively high.
