Nitrile glove is a type of medical gloves purely made from Nitrile latex - mainly synthesized from acrylonitrile and butadiene (synthetic rubber). It does not contain protein, so it is especially suitable for people with sensitive skin who are prone to allergies.
Nitrile gloves are made from neoprene, so their resilience and durability will be higher than other normal medical gloves. However, if it is punctured, it will completely be torn.
Because the composition of Nitrile gloves contains many different substances, including substances that are resistant to grease and chemicals, they can prevent the exposure to harmful chemicals.
Nitrile gloves are able to withstand high temperatures, which can help solve the weakness of other protective gloves that can only be used at low temperatures.
The ingredients that make up Nitrile gloves are removed from harmful and irritating ingredients. Therefore, it is suitable for most people, including people with a history of allergies.
In addition, it also has a few other features such as solvent resistance, antistatic, and wear resistance.
In the last few years, the medical glove industry has witnessed a steady growth rate.
Malaysia is the world's largest producer of rubber gloves, accounting for about 60% - 70% of the global market share. It is estimated that over 50 billion pairs of gloves are sold every year around the world. The annual growth rate of the medical glove industry is from 10% to 12%.
According to analysts, demand for Nitrile gloves is still high and growth will be solid because of the following reasons:
As for Vietnam, the country has great potential to develop this industry because of abundant rubber resources. Besides, there have not been many Vietnamese enterprises participating in this field.
Experts say that the current glove market is a competition for factory expansion and production volume. Obviously, the closer to the source of raw materials, the more convenient it is for reducing transportation costs. Currently, the rubber material area in the Southeast of vietnam is the headquarters of many companies producing rubber-related products in general, and gloves in particular.
Although Vietnam’s Nitrile glove industry has benefited a lot from the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic, it faces difficulties when the price of input materials increases. In particular, porcelain glove shaper cannot be produced domestically and must be ordered from Malaysia. It may take a year for the shipment of this material to be made in this context.
Due to the complicated development of the Covid-19 epidemic, demands for medical gloves have increased rapidly in the past 2 years. Currently, there are many companies producing medical gloves in Vietnam, however, not all of which guarantee quality standards.
