How does nitrile latex meet the production demand of nitrile gloves

In 2019, the global production capacity of nitrile latex was 1.58 million tons, 90% of which was used to produce nitrile gloves. The production of 125,000 nitrile gloves per ton corresponds to about 180 billion gloves, which corresponds exactly to the consumption of 188 billion in the global market;

After the 2020 epidemic, the global production capacity of nitrile latex by the end of the year is about 2 million tons, corresponding to 250 billion nitrile production lines, and 350 billion production lines for under-fed production lines, resulting in current prices 3 to 4 times higher than before the epidemic.

In 2021, according to the summary statistics of 17 nitrile rubber latex factories in China, China will expand its production by about 2 million tons, while Malaysia and other places are also expanding. Nitrile gloves. The raw materials are provided to the production line. The production line’s production capacity has climbed from 350 billion at the end of 2020 to 400 billion at the end of 2021. The global production capacity of nitrile gloves is still in short supply in the first half of the year and will basically be able to meet the production line by the end of 2021.

At the end of 2020, the global production capacity of nitrile latex is 2 million tons, and more than 90% is used for nitrile gloves, corresponding to 250 billion nitrile. Next year, the production capacity of nitrile latex will be about 3 million tons by the end of the year, corresponding to 375 billion nitrile gloves. However, after comparing the demand for nitrile gloves under the epidemic, this capacity is insufficient and too conservative. The growth in global demand for nitrile latex mainly comes from Malaysia, followed by China.

In 2019, China’s production of nitrile latex was 150,000 tons, and consumption reached 217,000 tons, 90% of which were used in medical gloves to produce 25 billion nitrile gloves, 4% were used for textile printing and dyeing, and 3% were used for abrasive materials. , 3% is applied to other mixed rubber.
