123 pages. With a population of 144 million, Russia is an important export destination for Malaysian rubber gloves. Almost all medical gloves used in the country are imported. Malaysia is currently the largest supplier of surgical and examination gloves to Russia. Approximately 50-55% of imported medical gloves in the country are sourced from Malaysia.
The market size of medical gloves in the country was estimated at 1.52 billion pairs in 2015. Consumption of medical gloves per capita in Russia is relatively low at about 11 pairs per capita. This indicates an opportunity for Malaysian exporters to increase its exports of medical gloves to Russia. Nevertheless, the process of getting medical gloves registered and approved for sale in the country is very time consuming and complicated. This has been the key barrier for many Malaysian exporters to enter and increase their exports of medical gloves to Russia. Hence, MREPC undertook the study on medical gloves in Russia to provide Malaysian companies with detailed information on the regulatory framework and procurement procedure in the healthcare sector in Russia relating to the supply of medical gloves.
This report also provides detailed information on the supply channels of medical gloves in the public healthcare sector which is the single largest buyer and consumer of medical gloves in Russia.
With this report, MREPC continues to play its role as a provider of researched market information to the rubber products industry in Malaysia and in assisting Malaysian exporters to identify and assess key markets for their range of products. MREPC welcomes feedbacks from Malaysian exporters in making this and similar reports more useful and relevant in the future.
