Disposable gloves are divided into four types according to the material: latex gloves, nitrile gloves, PVC gloves and PE gloves.In recent years, with the emphasis on health care, the usage of gloves has increased rapidly, especially the use of more convenient and more 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 auxiliaries, the large-scale production process of nitrile gloves and PVC gloves is becoming more and more mature, and with the advantage of sufficient supply of raw materials, rapid development, and continue to occupy the market share of latex gloves.
At present, the production of PVC gloves is concentrated in China, and the consumption is mainly concentrated in the United States, the European Union and Japan, among which the United States and the European Union are mainly used for medical care and inspection, food and household use, and Japan is mainly used for medical care and inspection.Due to the separation of production and consumption, China has also become the largest exporter of PVC gloves.Disposable gloves can be divided into medical examination grade and non-medical grade according to quality grade and use. The most important quality index to distinguish the two grades is pinhole rate.Among them, medical-grade gloves, which are high-end disposable gloves, need to meet the access standards of relevant medical USES in the target market.
Medical-grade gloves are mainly used for medical care and inspection. In most target exporting countries, the mandatory use of products is stipulated by law, and it is an important part of public health policy. The demand for mandatory procurement is strong, so the demand for products is stable and growing.At the same time, due to the high requirements of product testing standards, manufacturers must carry out strict quality control in order to continuously meet the requirements of medical gloves, so the product access threshold is high.
Non-medical gloves refer to disposable gloves used in other fields, such as food precision electronics.There are no mandatory laws in this market, and it is usually up to customers in various industries to make requirements on glove products according to their own production requirements.With the enhancement of the awareness of protection and the improvement of the consumption level, the non-medical market demand is constantly increasing.
