This meeting focused on the rubber gloves industry in the ASEAN region and also welcomed Vietnamese rubber glove manufacturers to start an association for rubber glove manufacturers in Vietnam. The dialogue between ARGMA committee members and observer delegates stressed on the importance of having a strong association for industry growth. The meeting focused on the benefits and advantages of Thai Rubber Glove Manufacturers Association, Malaysian Rubber Glove Manufacturers Association, and Indonesian Rubber Gloves Manufacturers Association.
Mr. KM Lee quoted Chairman of TRGMA Mr Prachai Kongwaree’s words that “it is better to have more friends in the industry. With friends, problems and misunderstanding can be easily solved. With friends, it is also easier to get help and information from each other.”

next ARGMA Meeting.
Mr KM Lee expressed thanks to the delegates from MARGMA, TRGMA and Vietnam
before declaring that the meeting is adjourned.
Challenges & Prospects (Rubber Gloves Market 2017)
2017 promises to be a demanding year for manufacturers of natural rubber gloves. The raw material price has risen by almost 60% over the past 12 months. This rise, linked to higher production costs, will lead to price rises for the consumer. Synthetic glove manufacturers will see some benefit from this, although expected price increases in crude oil and other materials will act as a counter balance. Product Price rise is expected in 2017.
Nevertheless, we expect to see market growth of 6-8% over the course of 2017. Hygiene concerns, especially in food processing, and higher health and safety standards will, we believe, lead to a higher demand. The rubber gloves market 2017 will grow at a steady pace for industrial and household gloves. Medical and examination gloves demand will grow at a constant growth rate, unless there is an unexpected outbreak or disease like MERS, H1N, ZIKA, etc.
Natural Rubber Latex Gloves
At TK Bosaeng Glove, we believe that natural rubber goods will continue to lead the market, despite the rising costs, as biodegradability and environmental concerns continue to play an important role in purchasing decisions. More companies are moving towards a “Green Concept” and applying Corporate Social Responsibility practices in day to day operations. Natural rubber latex gloves are environmentally friendly and non-hazardous to nature. The progress made in reducing Type I and type IV allergies in latex gloves will ensure that adverse reaction is negated, and pro-active new product development will continue to build new markets. We are already introducing new sizes, ranges and colors, including dual color designs, building on an impressive record of innovation. Quality standards continue to improve, and we are proud of our quality accreditation across the world.
Global Market Demand
Mature markets, as is the case in most of Europe, will remain stagnant and grow at a slow rate, but Asia, and in particular ASEAN countries, will continue to offer great growth potential. The United States will remain one the biggest end-users of rubber gloves, especially synthetic nitrile gloves, however with climate change impact, and new technologies used in producing latex gloves to reduce allergies, latex gloves will be highly considered by many for daily operations. With the increasing focus on climate change, we believe that the natural rubber gloves market will overcome the challenges, confident that latex products will always be the best choice for those who want to make a difference.

TK Bosaeng Glove, rubber latex gloves manufacturer in Thailand, is very pleased to support “ย้อมผ้าเพื่อเพื่อน” (Dyeing to a friend) campaign by donating our rubber latex gloves, Ariss and Bosaeng. We are very thankful and appreciative of being part of this campaign.
In October 2016, Thailand has faced one of its saddest events, the passing of King Rama IX, His Majesty “King Bhumibol Adulyadej”.
On this sad occasion, millions of Thai people traveled to Bangkok city from across all parts of the Kingdom of Thailand, to share their grieving and prayers.
As a world-wide custom and tradition, people wear black or dark colored clothing during such times. Thai people have traveled to Bangkok from their provinces, cities, and even small villages to pass their prayers for their King.
Many have found themselves in need of darker colored clothing and black attire so members of the society took action and started a campaign to donate their clothes to those in need. This campaign has seen important people in the Thai society contributing their time, efforts, leading by example, and sharing their warmth to the people. The most hard-working volunteers leading this campaign are Mrs. Araya “Chompoo” Hargate, her husband Mr. Nott Visrut Rangsisingpipat, and their many friends who are participating, like Mr. Kit Bencharongkul.
Clothes were given in all colors so the campaign volunteers had to change clothes’ colors into black, before donating it to the people. This campaign has seen thousands of people donating and participating in the process, as a result of Khun Araya Hargate’s participation, dedication, and social contribution.
The procedure to dye clothes requires safety and protection from hazardous materials and chemicals. We decided to help and assist. We donated various types of rubber latex gloves to protect all users and volunteers during this campaign.
