Supply Constraints Amid COVID-19:
The utilization of surgical gloves increased significantly with the declaration of the COVID-19 crisis in March 2020, as demand from traditional users in the medical profession grew and new industries began using medical gloves for daily activities, such as front-line workers, transportation workers, and even the general public. Additionally, the institution of vaccination campaigns across the globe had put more of a strain on the balance of supply and demand. As every COVID-19 vaccine administered requires a new pair of gloves, in the United States alone, vaccinating the entire population creates a need for approximately 660 million gloves. Global production increases are only able to sustain only a portion of the increase in demand. As a result, the global glove shortage persists and continued till 2022. The Top Glove Corporation produces more than one-quarter of the global supply of gloves. The company is one of the recognized organizations in Malaysia that is engaged in producing gloves and has its distribution networks across the world. Prior to July 2020, two subsidiaries of the company produced nearly one-half of Top Glove’s total exports to the United States. On July 15, 2020, however, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) issued a Withhold and Release Order for forced labor discoveries against these two subsidiaries, resulting in seizure of all listed products, including nitrile gloves, at CBP inspections. As a result of the immediate decrease in supply, the cost of nitrile gloves imported into United States from Malaysia rose 18 percent from July to August 2020 (to $0.03 per glove). With decrease in production and surge in COVID-19 hospitalizations in the United States, the cost of nitrile glove imports from Malaysia increased an additional 20 percent from November to December 2020 (to $0.05 per glove). By early 2021, Top Glove’s facilities had reopened as the government from the region issued some relaxations in the pandemic situation. Thus, it can be concluded that initially there has been supply constraints from manufacturers perspective but later owing to relaxations issued by the government, the supply constraints could be met with the rise in demand from hospitals, clinics, ambulatory surgical centers, amongst others.
