DUBLIN, May 17, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- The "Nitrile Gloves Market - Forecasts from 2019 to 2024" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

Rising concerns regarding latex allergy is the major driver of nitrile glove market.

Powder-free nitrile gloves market will grow at a high CAGR during the projected period owing to the growing health concern regarding the use of powdered gloves.

By end use industry, global nitrile gloves market is segmented as automotive, oil and gas, healthcare, food processing, construction, chemical, and others.
