Coffee with Samso: The business of making gloves - nitrile gloves

Glove manufacturing is making many companies profitable and this is not just because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

VIP Gloves Ltd - Coffee with Samso: The business of making gloves - nitrile gloves
In this episode Samso chats with VIP Gloves non-executive director Sebastian Chang

The glove-making business is one of those sectors that does not call out for attention. The recent COVID-19 pandemic has brought the sector out of hiding and into the limelight. It is a simple business that is making many companies very profitable.

This is not a common business in Australia, in fact, apart from VIP Gloves Ltd (ASX:VIP) there is no other company on the Australian Stock Exchange that can call themselves glove makers.

Malaysia is the market leader in the glove-making industry. The big four major producers - Top Glove Corporation Berhad, Hartalega Holdings Berhad, Supermax Corporation Berhad and Kossan Rubber Industries Berhad - are world market leaders in this sector.

Story of gloves

In this episode of Coffee with Samso, Sebastian Chang, non-executive director of the company, shares with the story of VIP and the business of glove makers.

Sebastian shows us that the business is not about the COVID-19 pandemic, but it is all about Occupational Health and Safety factors that are driving the business.

Sebastian also highlights why he thinks the glove business will keep its course of high demand and growing sales. Profit margins will be sustained and the ASP (Average Selling Price) will continue to increase, but at a slower rate for the next 12 to 24 months.
