By Business Wire News


Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the “Global Nitrile Gloves Market 2015-2019” report to their offering.

The analysts forecast the global nitrile gloves market to grow at a CAGR of 8.02% over the period 2014-2019.

As wearers are facing latex allergies, consumers are moving toward the use of nitrile gloves. Nitrile gloves are more puncture resistant than natural rubber gloves and have better properties such as flexibility and durability. Natural gloves are not as resistant to chemicals, when compared to nitrile gloves. Nitrile gloves provide better chemical and biohazard protection and have a better shelf life. Also, natural rubber is subject to cost fluctuations, which will affect the cost of the product. Thus, the nitrile gloves market is eating away the market share of natural rubber gloves.

According to the report, latex gloves are causing allergies in certain users, which is the major reason for the shift to synthetic gloves made from nitrile. Almost 6% of consumers are allergic to the protein present in the latex, mainly witnessed in the US. In China, almost 9% of nurses are at a high risk of contracting latex-related allergies. Consumers are using nitrile gloves to take necessary measures against outbreaks of allergies and diseases.
