Turkey presents an attractive market for the exports of medical products including gloves. The country has a large population of 80 million, growing access to health services by the population and a sizeable medical tourism sector. This market study on medical gloves in Turkey highlighted strong growth prospects for imported medical gloves consisting of surgical and examination gloves given the relatively low consumption of medical gloves per capita at 17 pairs and limited local production of medical gloves in Turkey.
The market size for medical gloves in Turkey is estimated at 1.3 billion pairs in 2016 and is expected to grow to 1.6 billion pairs by 2020. In recent years, exports of Malaysian rubber gloves particularly gloves for medical use to Turkey witnessed a positive growth trend. Malaysia is currently the largest exporter of medical gloves to Turkey, well ahead of its closest competitors such as Thailand and China, capturing 85% share of the total Turkish imports of medical gloves in 2015. With the right market entry and distribution strategies as well as effective market promotion activities, Malaysia could benefit from the growing demand for medical gloves in the Turkish healthcare sector.
This report, which examines the demand and supply of medical gloves in the healthcare sector in Turkey, aims to provide up-to-date information on the present and future consumption of gloves in the country. It also provides information on the supply chain, procurement policies, competitive scenario and key distributors of medical gloves. Through this report, MREPC continues to play its role as a provider of market information to the rubber products industry in Malaysia and in assisting Malaysian manufacturers of rubber products to assess key markets for their range of products. MREPC welcomes feedback from Malaysian exporters to make this and similar reports more useful and relevant in the future.
