Summary

Table of Contents

Medical gloves are a hand protection equipment, worn on the hands to prevent cross contamination between doctor or caregiver and patient during surgical procedures, medical examinations, and chemotherapy. The GCC medical gloves market is anticipated to be valued at US$ 99.5 Mn by the end of 2016 and register a value CAGR of 9.2% between 2016 and 2026.

Increasing awareness regarding hygiene and health and safety is boosting market growth

Growing prevalence of pandemic diseases such as Swine flu (H1N1 pandemic), HIV, and other communicable and non-communicable diseases; and an increase in the number of elective treatments such as plastic surgeries, facial rejuvenation etc. have created an increasing awareness regarding hygiene and disease prevention among both patients and healthcare providers. This is boosting the demand for medical gloves and subsequently impacting market growth in a positive way. Favourable government policies for the growth of the healthcare sector to meet international standards through the development of word-class healthcare infrastructure, services, and expertise is also contributing to the growth of the GCC medical gloves market.

However, an import oriented market, price-based competition, and increasing outbound medical tourism in the GCC region is expected to restrain the growth of the GCC medical gloves market over the forecast period.

The market is also witnessing trends such as a shift in demand from natural rubber gloves to synthetic rubber gloves and a focussed investment in capacity expansion by leading market players.
