As a rising star among rubber gloves, nitrile gloves have strong market potential. Looking at the domestic and foreign markets, the market size of the nitrile glove industry is constantly expanding and even exceeding expectations. According to data from the China Market Research and Research Center, the Chinese rubber glove market is in the late stage of growth, and the market has a clear trend of expansion. The market development trend of nitrile rubber gloves will continue to rise.
The market competition of nitrile gloves belongs to global competition. For a long time, the nitrile glove market has been dominated by Southeast Asian countries such as Malaysia, forming a relatively mature and stable market structure. The domestic introduction of nitrile production lines is relatively late, and related technologies and production lines are mainly from Southeast Asian countries such as Malaysia. However, China's industrial facilities, production costs, and environment have great advantages over Southeast Asian countries. Therefore, the domestic production of nitrile gloves has a great competitive advantage, and the quality and price are gradually widely accepted by people.
Nitrile gloves are mid-to-high-end products. After special processing and formulation improvements, the breathability and comfort are close to latex gloves. It is widely used in the operation of semiconductors, precision electronic components and viscous metal utensils, high-tech product installation and debugging, LCD display meters, circuit board production lines, optical products, dust-free laboratories, hospitals, beauty salons and other fields. In recent years, nitrile gloves have been used more widely in industries such as housework, chemistry, aquaculture, glass, food, and scientific research. Since customers choose nitrile gloves, it means that they have higher requirements for quality and use environment. Therefore, the market and living space of low-end nitrile gloves have been shrinking, and the production and sales of nitrile gloves have gradually concentrated on middle and high-end products. The quality requirements for products are getting higher and higher.
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, because the input cost of the nitrile glove production line is higher than that of PVC gloves, and there are fewer professional practitioners, the capital and technical threshold of the nitrile glove industry is relatively high. However, as China’s industrial development is very stable and rapid, coupled with the advent of Industry 4.0 intelligent manufacturing, labor laws and other laws and regulations have gradually strengthened the protection of workers, and companies have also significantly increased their investment in labor insurance products. Nitrile gloves have become the company’s choice. Gloves are the priority object; and in the medical field, because 12%-30% of the population are allergic to latex, the government and related agencies are also gradually increasing the use of nitrile gloves to ensure the safety of medical staff and patients. . According to data, China has become the world's leading consumer of nitrile rubber after the United States and Japan. According to CNKI's data, the demand for nitrile gloves has increased by more than 10% every year. Nitrile gloves have great potential in the future market, both at home and abroad.
