Covid-19 is having a significant impact, not only on our day-to-day lives, but also on the global supply chain and factory capacity relating to disposable hand protection. The demand for disposable hand protection and other PPE has increased to never-before-seen levels. These demands have stressed factories and the supply chain to the point that shortages are being seen in the marketplace. Production lead times on many products have increased from a few months or less to several quarters or more in just the last 45 days.

The newly-named Covid-19, also known as novel-Coronavirus, is creating increasingly stringent containment measures throughout China. Quarantine and travel restrictions accompanied by worker shortages, transportation limitations, and significant increases in domestic personal protection equipment demand has resulted in increased delivery times for vinyl, nitrile, and latex gloves. Lead times have been extended from 8 weeks to 16 weeks or more based on product demand. This global issue is affecting all glove suppliers worldwide.
