Nitrile Gloves in Bulk: How to get a Supplier during COVID
The increasing demand and the scarcity of supply is giving many distributors the option to push up the prices of nitrile gloves. It’s becoming increasingly important to find distributors that have a direct relationship with manufacturers and are more likely to have fair prices.

As several countries around the world go into a third lockdown, buying nitrile gloves in bulk becomes increasingly difficult and costly. Demand is skyrocketing and the few factories still in production are struggling to keep up with demand.
The biggest glove distributor in the world closes its largest factory
The largest manufacturer in the world, Top Glove, recently had to shut their largest factory in Malaysia due to an outbreak of coronavirus amongst its workers. The country has since announced a state of emergency bringing even more uncertainty to the world’s supply of medical-grade nitrile gloves.
US-China Trade War Blocks Supply Chains to the US
The second largest manufacturers of medical gloves are in China. For US glove distributors, this poses an issue. The US-China trade war has resulted in blocked shipments and unreliable delivery dates.
The increasing demand and the scarcity of supply is giving many distributors the option to push up their prices. It’s becoming increasingly important to find distributors that have a direct relationship with manufacturers and are more likely to have fair prices.
Vietnam has kept consistently low numbers of covid infections throughout the pandemic through strict government regulations. As a result, the country continues to conduct international business and manufacture of nitrile gloves carries on smoothly.
Foreign Access to Nitrile Gloves Manufacturers in Vietnam
Only a select few Vietnamese glove manufacturers are approved for international export. These suppliers are now experiencing high demand from the international market. However, requests for shipments are not easily approved as these suppliers are under management by the Vietnamese Government. Regulations have been put in place to ensure that domestic requirements are met before any export can take place.
Using Nitrile Gloves Distributors in Vietnam
Manufacturers usually do not supply directly to buyers. In the rare occasion that direct orders are established, buyers will need to accept strict payment policies such as a 30% downpayment and a minimum order of a million cartons.
Most suppliers work through a network of distributors within Vietnam like Emerhub, that can secure more flexible payment terms and smaller bulk orders.
Securing the best prices requires finding F1 level distributors. These distributors have a direct line to manufacturers. Most distributors are F2, F3 or F4 distributors and do not have a direct line to manufacturers meaning their prices are much higher than F1 suppliers.
