Inexpensive and Local Substitutes to Hinder Sales of Industrial Gloves

Considering the growth opportunities that the global industrial gloves market is likely to provide manufacturers with, many small and medium sized vendors have entered into the market in various product segments and across several regions.

In order to curb this risk, international manufacturers are focusing on the expansion of their consumer base by establishing manufacturing units in regions where the cost of labor and raw material is comparatively low. 

Asia Pacific is expected to emerge as the fastest growing region with a CAGR of 12% from 2016 to 2024. The global industrial gloves market is projected to expand at a 9.6% CAGR from 2016 to 2024. In 2015, the market was valued at US$5.13 bn and is projected to touch US$11.1 bn by the end of 2024.
