Albany, NY, March 09, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- According to the report, the disposable gloves market in the U.K. was valued at US$ 262.4 Million in 2014 and is anticipated to reach US$ 481.5 Million by 2023, expanding at a CAGR of 7.0% between 2015 and 2023
Disposable gloves are single use gloves recommended to be worn primarily because of two reasons:
- To reduce the risk of contamination or infection for health care workers.
- To reduce germ dissemination to the environment and transmission from an infected person to the surroundings.
Demand for disposable gloves is increasing at a steady rate in the U.K. Enactment of hygiene regulations to spread awareness about hygiene by the European Agency for Safety and Health at Work (EU OSHA), the World Health Organization (WHO), and the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) is also expected to accelerate demand for disposable gloves in the U.K. Continuous threat from communicable diseases such as bird flu, swine flu, SARS, plague, EBOLA, and Zika in the past few years in the U.K has induced awareness among health care workers to use disposable gloves. Demand for disposable gloves in medical applications is expected to be high in the market; however, slow penetration in the non-medical applications, especially food & beverage, can be witnessed in the near future. Declining demand for natural rubber latex disposable gloves due to increasing risk of latex allergy is anticipated to hinder market growth. Rise in adoption of synthetic disposable gloves is expected to fuel the growth of the disposable gloves market.
