DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/b9fgxl/global_disposable) has announced the addition of the "Global Disposable Medical Gloves Market 2014-2018" report to their offering.
The analysts forecast the Global Disposable Medical Gloves market to grow at a CAGR of 6.62 percent over the period 2013-2018. One of the key factors contributing to this market growth is the increasing prevalence of infections and bio-hazards. The Global Disposable Medical Gloves market has also been witnessing the increasing preference for synthetic gloves. However, the price fluctuations of raw materials could pose a challenge to the growth of this market.
Key vendors dominating this space are Ansell Healthcare LLC., Cardinal Health Inc., Hartalega Holdings Berhad, Medline Industries Inc., Top Glove Corp., and Supermax Corp.
Other vendors mentioned in the report are B. Braun Melsungen AG, Cypress Medical Products LLC., DASH Medical Gloves Inc., Dynarex Corp., Intco Medical Co.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from the team said: The increasing prevalence of allergies and discomfort associated with the use of latex gloves has led to the development of disposable gloves from other polymeric materials. Synthetic materials such as nitrile butadiene rubber and polyvinyl chloride are some of the new materials being used in the production of disposable gloves. These materials provide excellent tactility, strength, and have less adverse effects on the skin. In fact, synthetic gloves are gaining popularity among users, and the Synthetic Gloves segment is the fastest-growing segment in the Global Disposable Medical Gloves market, and it is expected to garner a major share during the forecast period. Indeed, synthetic gloves could potentially replace latex gloves. Hence, the increasing demand and preference for synthetic disposable gloves is expected to boost the growth of the Global Disposable Medical Gloves market during the forecast period.
