Demand for rubber protective gloves on the risePosted on 11/08/2009
The need for rubber protective gloves may be on the rise globally due to an increasing focus on occupational safety.
That is according to research conducted by Companies and Markets, which shows that the demand for rubber glove products could grow by as much as ten per cent per annum.
Demand from countries such as China, Vietnam and India is notably said to be improving because of growing awareness relating to things such as health and hygiene.
However, the firm also suggests that regulations are playing a part in the growth of the rubber protective gloves industry, with a number of industries now making it mandatory for employees to wear them.
The Companies and Markets research additionally shows that Malaysia is a key exporter of rubber glove products, supplying firms in the US and EU.
Companies and Markets produces a number of intelligence reports looking into a wide range of industries worldwide.
