Powdered Surgical Glove Market was estimated to be valued at US$189.796 million in 2020.

Powdered surgical gloves have high demand in the market due to the growing prevalence of hospital-acquired infections. Additionally, many surgical procedures are anticipated to drive the overall market growth during the forecast period. Powdered gloves can absorb extra moisture from the skin, and they are easily wearable compared to non-powdered gloves, which is expected to drive their demand in the coming years. Furthermore, growing investments by major developing economies in their healthcare infrastructure coupled with an increase in healthcare expenditure across developing countries such as India, China, Mexico, and others are projected to boost the product demand in the future.

Powdered Surgical Glove Market Driver

The rising prevalence of hospital-acquired infections

The rising prevalence of hospital-acquired infections such as bloodstream infection, urinary tract infection, surgical site infection, etc., is expected to increase the demand for powdered surgical gloves in the market during the forecast period. According to the National Institute of Health and Care Excellence (NICE), around 300,000 people are diagnosed with hospital-acquired infections in England every year. The main reason for the increasing number of HAI is due to the contamination of equipment/instruments and cross-contamination within the hospital. To prevent cross-contamination and the spread of infections and maintain good hygienic procedures, there is a growing demand for powdered surgical gloves across hospitals and clinics.

Powdered Surgical Glove Market Restraint

Complications associated with powdered gloves are expected to act as a major restraint during the forecast period

According to researchers, powdered gloves may cause adverse reactions in healthcare workers or patients. Many cases were studied where powdered gloves cause well-known allergy symptoms, myocarditis, irritation of the central nervous system, and upper respiratory disorders among healthcare workers. Another major problem arising from powdered gloves is the development of adhesions triggered by the increased inflammatory response and granulomas.  U.S. Food and Drug Administration has announced a proposal to ban powdered gloves in the United States to protect public health across the country. According to FDA, these gloves pose a substantial risk of illness to healthcare workers, patients, and other individuals who use them. These complications are expected to hinder the market growth during the forecast period.

During the projected period, Asia-Pacific is expected to hold a significant proportion of the Powdered surgical glove market

Geographically, the powdered surgical glove market is classified into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, South America, and Middle East & Africa. Asia-Pacific is expected to dominate the powdered surgical glove market during the forecast period. Factors such as rising investments in healthcare infrastructure, increasing availability of better healthcare facilities, and spreading awareness of hygiene among healthcare professionals across the region are expected to contribute to the market's growth.

COVID-19 Insights

The COVID-19 pandemic had a positive impact on the overall market growth. During the pandemic, medical gloves were used by healthcare personnel and individuals to prevent cross-contamination and the spread of infection, which has increased their demand in the market. However, the supply availability was hampered by several issues like import/export, travel ban by some countries, and a nationwide lockdown that forced suppliers to shut down, which has slowed down the market growth to some extent.
