Japan Medical Gloves Market- Overview

Healthcare professionals and workers use medical gloves as part of their personal protective equipment (PPE) during medical examinations and surgical procedures. Medical gloves lower the risk of cross-contamination between health care workers and patients besides protecting doctors from exposure to blood and other body fluids.

Japan Medical Gloves Market Forecast and Trends

Growth Drivers

Increasing Burden of Infectious and Chronic Diseases

A high geriatric population in Japan fuels the demand for diagnostic tests and hospitalization for chronic diseases. Furthermore, the developing healthcare infrastructure in Japan is also making healthcare services more accessible. As a result, the demand for medical gloves is projected to surge during the forecast period. Furthermore, the increasing number of surgical procedures is also propelling the demand for medical gloves due to the high risks of cross-contamination and infections during open surgeries.

Flourishing Medical Tourism

Japan is emerging as a major destination for medical care and treatment. With an estimated 430,000 international patients annually, the country is now aiming to become the leading Asian destination for medical care. It is one of the top medical tourism destinations, following Canada and Singapore. The increasing number of tourists flocking to the country for various surgical procedures is predicted to boost demand for medical gloves during the forecast period. Additionally, cosmetic surgery in Japan is extremely popular among Western patients due to its lower cost as well as advanced techniques, which is anticipated to propel the Japan medical gloves market in the coming years.

Restraints

Growing Concern Towards Medical Waste

The increasing volume of medical waste is emerging as a major concern for environmentalists in Japan. The widespread use of non-biodegradable disposable medical gloves ends up in landfills, polluting the environment. Gloves that have been in direct contact with bodily fluids can be hazardous waste, so they should be disposed of properly as the improper disposal of medical gloves may lead to the spread of infection. Such concerns may act as a huge restraint for Japan medical gloves market.

Impact of COVID-19 on Japan Medical Gloves Market

The unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic outbreak positively impacted the growth of the Japan medical gloves market. This period was particularly prosperous for disposable medical gloves due to the growing obsession with hygiene and sanitation in healthcare facilities to prevent the spread of infectious diseases. All the frontline healthcare providers were made to use personal protective equipment (PPE) kits that included disposable medical gloves for their safety. The manufacturers also expanded their production capacities and the government focused on boosting imports to bridge the demand and supply gap for medical gloves in the market.

Japan Medical Gloves Market - By Product Type

Based on product types, the Japan medical gloves market is grouped into examination, surgical, and chemotherapy segments. The examination segment holds the largest market share due to the increasing burden of infectious and chronic diseases and the rising demand for diagnostic tests in the country. The surgical segment also holds a substantial share in the market due to the increasing demand for various invasive and non-invasive surgical procedures and substantial rise in cosmetic surgeries due to the flourishing medical tourism in the country.

Japan Medical Gloves Market - By Form

Based on forms, the Japan medical gloves market is segmented into powdered and powder-free segments. The powder-free segment accounts for the largest market share due to the benefits it offers over powdered gloves.

Furthermore, powder-free gloves mean there are no mess or residues that can get into tissues during surgical procedures and hinder the healing process.

Japan Medical Gloves Market - By Usage

Based on usages, Japan medical gloves market is categorized into disposable and reusable segments. The disposable medical gloves segment held the largest market share due to the surge in demand for such globes after the COVID-19 pandemic.
