Market Driver

Availability of Eco-friendly Gloves to Bolster Market Growth

The protective gloves market growth is expected to gather considerable momentum as the availability of eco-friendly gloves widens. Companies have been developing and launching gloves made from sustainable materials to reduce plastic pollution created by the rampant use of non-degradable protective equipment across industries. For example, Japan-based Showa Corporation developed biodegradable nitrile gloves using its proprietary Eco Best Technology to allow gloves to biodegrade in landfills. In 2018, a California-based company called Eagle Protect launched its FineTOUGH nitrile glove, which weighs 50% lesser than a regular food-handling glove, making the product easy to dispose with lower emissions. Thus, development of sustainable protective gloves for various industries is brightening the prospects of this market.
