•Europe: Europe is one of the dominant markets in the disposable gloves market. The major revenue contributors for the disposable glove are the UK, Germany, France, Spain, and Italy. For instance, in Italy, the surge in glove demand is because of strict hygiene guidelines in the food and beverage industry. At the same time, Germany is known for its manufacturing sector, especially in the automobile, machine building, chemical, and food processing industries, creating a demand for disposable gloves.

•Asia Pacific: APAC is seen as a region with substantial market opportunities for players in the disposable gloves market.
