The Industrial Safety Gloves Market size is estimated at USD 10.67 billion in 2024, and is expected to reach USD 15.33 billion by 2029, growing at a CAGR of 7.5% during the forecast period (2024-2029).

Due to stringent regulations towards employees' safety, industrial gloves are finding significant applications in various heavy-duty industries, such as construction, chemicals, automotive, oil and gas, and waste management. In addition, these industrial gloves made of latex, nitrile, and HPPE offer enhanced grip and ease of operation, which is impossible with bare hands. The growing demand for efficient gloves with better grip and convenience encourages the key players to engage in continuous product development and launches. For instance, Showa launched a safety glove named 'Showa 379 gauntlet', which provides extra chemical resistance and is highly flexible.

Rising awareness among industry players regarding the importance of worker safety and security at workplaces, owing to the stringent regulations and high costs associated with workplace hazards, is anticipated to drive the market. The demand for industrial gloves is expected to rise over the forecasted period, as it helps in easy donning, removal, better grip, and less sweat and moisture inside the gloves. The demand for these industrial gloves is expected to grow over the forecast period due to their increased usage across numerous industries such as oil & gas, manufacturing, automotive, and construction. According to IBEF (India Brand Equity Foundation), India's annual production of automobiles in FY21 was 22.65 million vehicles, and 13 million vehicles were produced between April-October 2021. Hence, with the growth of the automobile industry, the demand for nitrile gloves is increasing worldwide.
