India Medical Gloves Market Forecast and Trends

Growth Drivers

Increasing Diagnostic Tests And Demand For Surgical Procedures

The high population of India results in a diverse patient base suffering from various medical conditions that call for diagnosis or surgeries. The increasing burden of various diseases especially among younger children and the geriatric population propels the demand for diagnostic tests and examination, thereby strengthening India’s medical gloves market. Furthermore, India is currently well positioned to lead in medical tourism. Therefore, the rising demand for surgical procedures in the country due to the flourishing medical tourism are anticipated to fuel the growth of India’s medical gloves market during the forecast period.

Rising Burden of Infectious Diseases

The Indian population is at the highest risk of contracting infectious diseases, and the most prevalent victims come from rural areas as well as extremely dense populations in urban areas. There is a sharp increase in the risk of spreading infectious diseases such as visceral leishmaniasis, dengue fever, malaria, rabies, etc., caused by pathogens and which are highly communicable. As a result, the government is making the use of medical gloves and PPE during the medical examination and treatment of communicable diseases mandatory in order to reduce the chances of an epidemic outbreak, which is expected to drive the India medical gloves market growth during the forecast period.

Restraints

Growing Concern about Medical Waste

The medical gloves are manufactured using materials such as latex, vinyl rubber, nitrile rubber, etc., to offer maximum protection for healthcare workers. However, these raw materials are non-biodegradable and take thousands of years to decompose. The use of disposable gloves, especially after the COVID-19 pandemic, generated a tremendous volume of medical waste, which is emerging as a major concern for environmental conservationists. According to data from the Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB), the highest recorded daily bio-medical waste generation in India occurred in May 2021, at approximately 250 tonnes per day (TPD), when the second wave peaked in numerous states. The lack of proper knowledge of disposing of methods in India to minimize its adverse effects may act as a major restraint for the market’s growth.

Impact of COVID-19 on India Medical Gloves Market

India medical gloves market witnessed tremendous growth after the COVID-19 pandemic period. Around 348,000 million cases were recorded as of December 2021 in India, which overburdened the healthcare entire healthcare system.  Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) kits were provided to all doctors, frontline healthcare workers and staff that are directly engaging with COVID-19 patients to protect them from the transmission of the virus. This fueled the demand for medical gloves across the country. To cope up with the surging demand in the domestic market, medical gloves manufacturers in the country started expanding their production capacity to bridge the demand and supply gap.

Based on product types, the India medical gloves market is grouped into examination, surgical, and chemotherapy segments. Among these, the examination segment accounted for the largest market share in 2021 because of its prominent use during the COVID-19 pandemic to perform mass coronavirus tests. Furthermore, the rising prevalence of various infectious and chronic diseases and increasing accessibility to healthcare services is also fueling the demand for medical gloves in the country. On the other hand, the surgical medical gloves segment also held a significant share in the market because of the increasing demand for surgical procedures across the country.

India Medical Gloves Market - By Raw Material

The vinyl or polyvinyl chloride (PVC) material accounts for the largest market share as gloves made of such materials are reasonably priced and do not cause skin allergies. Therefore, those gloves are prominently used while conducting medical diagnosis or examination. On the other hand, the demand for vinyl medical gloves also spiked during the COVID-19 period due to the high demand for low-cost disposable medical gloves for single-use purposes.

India Medical Gloves Market - Regional Insights

Geographically, the India medical gloves market is segmented into North India, South India, East India, and West India. Despite the fact that demand for medical gloves increased dramatically across the country during the pandemic, it was highest in the southern states. This is because states like Kerala, Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh were among the top COVID-19 affected states in India with a high number of cases, according to Hindustan Times.
