If ASP goes up when all other companies follow, the rev/ profits will move including inventories values.

From news report about Top Glove..
In October, Top Glove hiked its selling price by 5 per cent. We need an initiator to start raising prices, he added, noting that other players might follow suit and increase prices as well. He added that the company did face some resistance from its customers after the price increase.
For now, Top Glove does not have plan to raise funds from markets, said managing director Lim. He noted that the group also has banking facilities that it can draw on if there is a need .

A company spokesperson told The Business Times that the company upward price revision, declining raw material prices and a stronger US dollar will help the group return to profitability. ASPs are bottoming out, and there should be no need for further writedowns if the price continues to stabilise. Hence, we should see an improvement next quarter the spokesperson added.

Supermax and the other gloves companies MUST increase ASP to reverse the down trend.. Period.

PETALING JAYA (Aug 3): The global demand for rubber gloves is expected to return to growth in 2023, after a 19% contraction to an estimated 399 billion pieces this year, from 492 billion in 2021 when the world was at the peak of the Covid-19 pandemic.

The Malaysian Rubber Glove Manufacturers Association (MARGMA) expects glove demand to expand in the range of 12%-15% next year. Meanwhile, the association has cut its demand forecast for this year by 12% to 399 billion pieces, from 452 billion pieces previously, as the demand normalises against the backdrop that the Covid-19 pandemic is under control.

MARGMA’s President Dr Supramaniam Shanmugam, however, stressed that the association’s forecast “is a very conservative estimate”, given the various growth drivers, for instance rising hygiene awareness, ageing population and recovery in non-Covid-19 related demand.

PETALING JAYA (Aug 3): The global demand for rubber gloves is expected to return to growth in 2023, after a 19% contraction to an estimated 399 billion pieces this year, from 492 billion in 2021 when the world was at the peak of the Covid-19 pandemic.

The Malaysian Rubber Glove Manufacturers Association (MARGMA) expects glove demand to expand in the range of 12%-15% next year. Meanwhile, the association has cut its demand forecast for this year by 12% to 399 billion pieces, from 452 billion pieces previously, as the demand normalises against the backdrop that the Covid-19 pandemic is under control.

MARGMA’s President Dr Supramaniam Shanmugam, however, stressed that the association’s forecast “is a very conservative estimate”, given the various growth drivers, for instance rising hygiene awareness, ageing population and recovery in non-Covid-19 related demand.

He explained that MARGMA’s initial forecast on global glove demand had taken into consideration the potential risk from the outbreak of the Omicron variant.

“Now we find most of these [risks] have come under control. That’s why we need to reassess the numbers,” said Supramaniam.

He was speaking at the press conference on Wednesday (Aug 3) in conjunction with the memorandum of understanding (MOU) signing ceremony for the upcoming 10th International Rubber Glove Conference & Exhibition (IRGCE).

MARGMA and the Malaysian Rubber Council, which will jointly host the IRGCE, had signed the MOU with 18 key sponsors of the IRGCE on Wednesday.

Supramaniam said Malaysia, which produces an estimated 240 billion pieces of gloves in 2022, is expected to command a 65% share of the global rubber glove market, followed by China (20%), Thailand (10%) and Indonesia (3%).

In line with the decline in global demand this year, MARGMA projects that the export value of rubber gloves from Malaysia would drop by 58% to RM23.10 billion this year, from RM54.81 billion last year and RM35.26 billion in 2020.

Nonetheless, MARGMA foresees that the export value for rubber gloves from Malaysia would grow 10% annually from 2023 onwards.

“Glove manufacturing will still be a profitable business, bearing [in] mind, in normal conditions, its (annual global demand) growth is about 15%,” said Supramaniam.

Nonetheless, Supramainam expects the outlook of the Malaysian glove industry to be tough in the next six- to nine months, in terms of production capacity utilisation and glove average selling prices.

“Supply pipeline has sufficient gloves. Upon (supply-demand) equilibrium, players will expand only to the tune of demand growth,” he said.

Supramaniam also updated that MARGMA members have so far automated about 85% of their glove production operations, and that it will take them another three- to four years to automate 95% of their operations.

“The last mile is very important and we are investing continuously to achieve that. One of the examples we like to use is 10 years ago, we needed 9.7 workers to produce one million pieces of gloves. Today, to produce the same [number] of gloves, we need 1.7 workers. So, we will continue to automate,” he said.

Tokyo's new COVID-19 cases hit a record high of 40,406 on Thursday, surpassing 40,000 for the first time, with health experts urging "maximum vigilance" as the country continues to struggle with its seventh wave of infections.

Japan reported 233,100 daily coronavirus cases the same day, hitting a new record for the second consecutive day, raising concern about the strain on the medical system as the number of available designated hospital beds continues to decline.

The daily figure in the capital was up by about 8,500 from a week before, and comes after daily COVID-19 cases hit a record high of 209,694 on Wednesday.

BEIJING – China could face more than 630,000 COVID-19 infections a day if it dropped its zero-tolerance policies by lifting travel curbs, according to a study by Peking University mathematicians.
In the report published in China CDC Weekly by the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention, the mathematicians said China could not afford to lift travel restrictions without more efficient vaccinations or specific treatments.

Using data for August from the United States, Britain, Spain, France and Israel, the mathematicians assessed the potential results if China adopted the same pandemic control tactics as those countries.
China’s daily new cases would reach at least 637,155 if it adopted the United States’ pandemic strategy, the report said.

China’s Covid Cases Near 700 as Shanghai Widens Testing
Financial hub to test around 20 million residents this week
July 19, 2022 at 9:24 AM

New Covid-19 cases in China jumped to almost 700, with more infectious strains of the virus continuing to test the country’s hardline approach as outbreaks spread beyond the major cities.
China reported 699 cases for Monday -- the highest daily tally since May 22 -- after recording more than 1,000 infections over the weekend.
Most of the cases are centered in the hotspots of the Guangxi region in the south, which recorded 243 cases on Monday -- taking its total since the outbreak there flared six days ago to 829 -- and the remote northwestern province of Gansu, which reported 231 new infections, taking the number of cases there in the past week to 953.

Europe shows latest COVID-19 wave is not just a winter thing

London - It may be a long, hot summer but a major COVID-19 surge is sweeping through Britain and Europe, as omicron variants BA.4 and BA.5 reach a peak.
Officials in both London and Brussels late last week began expanding the rollout of a second booster shot.

But the escalating infection and hospitalisation rates have not prompted widespread explicit concern among the public or politicians.
In Britain, the Office of National Statistics estimates that almost 3.5 million people had COVID-19 in the first week of July, a stunning 29 per cent increase from the previous week.
That is one person in every 20. Although that is still below the record of 4.9 million during the March BA.2 tsunami, it is the highest yet recorded for a summer month...

SHANGHAI: Several large Chinese cities including Shanghai are on their toes due to new outbreaks of COVID-19 infections, rolling out repeated mass testing or extending lockdowns on millions of residents, with some measures triggering a public outcry.

China has reported an average of around 390 local daily infections in the seven days ending on Sunday (Jul 17), higher than about 340 seven days earlier, according to Reuters calculations based on official data as of Monday. That is tiny compared with a resurgence in other parts of Asia. Still, any flare-up would unnerve local officials, with China adamant in implementing its dynamic "zero-COVID" policy of eliminating outbreaks as soon as they emerge and punishing officials if they fail to do so.

The commercial hub Shanghai, which has yet to fully recover from the harsh two-month lockdown in spring and is still reporting daily sporadic cases, said on Monday it plans to hold mass testing in many of its 16 districts and in some smaller areas where new infections had been reported recently, after similar testing last week.

Shanghai will require residents across nine of the city's districts and some smaller areas to undergo testing for COVID-19 from Jul 19 to Jul 21 in an effort to stem any community spread of the virus, the city government said on Monday. Residents of the districts, which include Xuhui, Jingan and Huangpu, will be required to take two COVID-19 tests over the three-day period...

Easier said than done.
Not easy for chinese companies to fully automate gloves productions.
Their costs could be higher due to more expensive labour, high energy costs and supply chain disruption etc..
Zero Covid strategy is going to hurt them a lot.
Quality is another issue for chinese made gloves.
Thats why they are all making losses.
More and deeper losses if they continue the same path.
