Repeated outbreaks of highly contractible diseases such as Bird Flu, Swine Flu, MERS and others are also the driving factors along with increasing utilization in chemical, oil and gas industry. The major factors restraining the demand are a widespread proliferation of substandard counterfeit products and allergic reactions from some materials that the gloves are made of.
