The construction and electronics industries in North America are growing substantially due to increasing residential construction and infrastructure development. In the US, rapid growth in commercial and residential construction activities is one of the major factors driving the demand for industrial gloves. According to the US Census Bureau, ~1,392,300 housing units were completed in 2022, which is 3.8% more than the 2021 figure of 1,341,000 housing units. In addition, there is an increase in the construction of industrial projects such as power transmission plants and manufacturing plants. Rapid urbanization, increasing population, industrial development, and infrastructure development are a few factors driving the demand for industrial gloves. For instance, the California High-Speed Rail Project, Sanborn Solar facility, and Hyperloop (US) are a few of the infrastructure projects surging the demand for industrial gloves for protection against injuries during work. Thus, increasing construction activities are propelling the North America industrial gloves market growth in the US.
In Canada, the construction sector is a massive industry. Construction is the backbone of the country's economy and is responsible for creating and maintaining the built infrastructure for cities, towns, and communities. As Canada's economy and population continue to rise, the need for infrastructure and housing grows. According to the Canadian Construction Association, the construction industry employs over 1.4 million people in the country. The Canadian government has also committed to building and maintaining infrastructure in the economy. The government has allocated over US$ 180 billion (CAD) in crucial infrastructure over the next decade under the "Investing in Canada Plan." The plan includes funding for projects related to public transit, affordable housing, and the development of rural communities. With the construction sector projecting significant growth in the coming years, more skilled laborers are likely to be needed on the ground to keep up with the demand. This, in turn, is expected to generate massive demand for different industrial security equipment, including gloves, over the next few years.
