Automation – the Key to Combat Industrial Operational Challenges – Expected to Restrict Demand for Industrial Safety Gloves

With bolstering adoption of automation across industrial verticals, robots are briskly substituting manpower more prominently in the manufacturing sector. As major manufacturing companies continue to embrace automation riding on the state-of-the art technologies, it is most likely that they deliver improved operational efficiency with maximum accuracy.

The advent of such technologies is being perceived as a highly influential factor limiting the adoption of personal workplace safety equipment such as industrial safety gloves in the near future.

The recently announced world’s first-ever AR (Augmented Reality) Management Platform for Industrial Enterprises (by Atheer Inc) is expected to enable hands-free mode of operation through AR devices, which will readily eliminate the need for equipment such as industrial safety gloves at manufacturing facilities.

Industrial Safety Gloves Manufacturers Maintain Focus on Material Innovation and Sustainability to Capture the Attention of Innovators in the Industrial Safety Gloves Market

The industrial safety gloves marketplace is frequently witnessing the introduction of innovative products, targeting more efficiency through the combination of high performance materials used for industrial safety gloves manufacturing. In addition to fostering demand for industrial safety gloves made of nitrile and rubber for a gamut of industrial applications, leather-made industrial safety gloves are witnessing robust sales as well.

Material innovation will thus continue to be in the limelight for leading players operating in the industrial safety gloves marketplace. Ironclad recently received recognition for the patented Limitless Leather 360-degree Cut Impact Driver Glove that combines comfort, dexterity, and affordability in one package.

While Kevlar stitching of these industrial safety gloves affirms their endurance, the company claims that the rating of durability is eightfold compared to that of conventional leather-made industrial safety gloves.

Moreover, growing demand for sustainable materials for manufacturing of industrial safety gloves is compelling industrial safety gloves manufacturers to adopt a set of green technologies, which is presumed to facilitate the industry’s shift to renewable energy and slash down the overall manufacturing costs.

ASEAN & ANZ Shape the Growth of APEJ’s Industrial Safety Gloves Landscape

With rampant industrialization, APEJ’s industrial sector is lately becoming more vivid, underlining growing significant of workplace/occupational safety. APEJ, though has been demonstrating robust growth in the recent past, still continues to encounter major issues related to labor safety at workplaces. Across Asia, over a million people die from occupational injuries each year, as indicated by the stats provided by ILO (International Labour Organization).

While this highlights the lucrativeness of APEJ as a regional market for the penetration of industrial safety gloves manufacturers, a major contribution to growth is expected from the steady performers in industrial safety gloves landscape, i.e. Australia and New Zealand, besides ASEAN countries. These economies have been the early movers to industrial safety standards over the years, which is enabling them to gain an edge over others across the Asian Rim in industrial safety gloves market.

Competitive Landscape Analysis: Industrial Safety Gloves Market
