RHB says vaccine deployment could generate demand for up to 18 billion pieces of gloves a year


KUALA LUMPUR (Nov 19): RHB Investment Bank Bhd said today Covid-19 vaccine deployment could be a new demand source for rubber gloves at up to 18 billion pieces a year assuming that 60% of the world’s population of 7.5 billion people will get the vaccine in two doses annually.

“As each contact with a person should lead to the usage of one pair of disposable gloves, a vaccine deployment will generate demand of 18 billion pieces per annum in the short term. If the vaccine protection period is only up to a year, this 18 billion pieces per annum demand will recur on an annual basis. This is equivalent to 6.8% of the 263 billion pieces per annum global gloves demand in 2019,” RHB analyst Alan Lim wrote in a note today.
