Even at full capacity, Malaysia’s producers won’t be able to meet the current need. Top Glove said it’s seeing orders for as many as 2.6 billion gloves weekly -- double its full capacity. The company, which supplies a little more than a quarter of the world’s gloves, recently received an exemption to fully staff its production lines.
“We are running 24 hours, two shifts on the production floor,” said Lim Wee Chai, Top Glove’s executive chairman. “There’s a definite shortage already.”
Next 5 or 10 year harta will produce 100% amg glove..topglove.supermax and kossan will take market share for nitrile glove that left by harta...i think next move for top glove to buy UG healtcare to compete with harta in amg glove ..harta already in new level for amg glove that not many competitor....
We do have a trade war, prices will probably go up on a few things. At the same time U.S. Steel is just firing up a defunct plant in the U.S. because the demand for domestic steel is up because of these tariffs.”
