Growth Drivers:

  • Increasing Emphasis on Hygiene and Infection Control: There is a growing awareness about the importance of maintaining hygiene and infection control in healthcare settings. Medical gloves serve as a critical barrier to prevent the transmission of pathogens and reduce the risk of cross-contamination. The emphasis on hygiene and infection control practices, particularly in hospitals and clinics, drives the demand for medical gloves.
  • Rising Healthcare Expenditure: South Korea has been witnessing a steady increase in healthcare expenditure over the years. The government has been actively investing in healthcare infrastructure, promoting universal healthcare coverage, and encouraging advancements in medical technologies. The growing healthcare expenditure translates into higher demand for medical gloves as they are essential for routine medical procedures, examinations, and surgeries.
  • Focus on Patient Safety: Patient safety has become a top priority in healthcare. Medical gloves play a crucial role in protecting patients from potential infections and contamination during medical procedures. Healthcare providers and regulatory bodies place significant emphasis on patient safety, creating a strong demand for medical gloves that meet stringent quality and safety standards.


  • Limited Supply Chain Resilience: The COVID-19 pandemic highlighted the vulnerability of global supply chains, including the medical gloves industry. Disruptions in the supply chain, such as logistics challenges, restrictions on international trade, and raw material shortages, can hinder the availability and distribution of medical gloves. Ensuring a resilient supply chain and reducing dependency on a single source can mitigate such risks.
