Growth Opportunity Assessment for a Leading Korean Chemical Company

Exploring a new business opportunity in the industrial personal protective equipment (PPE) market.


A Korean client had a well-established business in the medical gloves segment. However, as COVID-19-fueled demand subsided, the client wanted to shift their attention to industrial-grade personal protective equipment (PPE). They wanted to understand the main regulations, raw material types, different applications, and major global producers of industrial gloves.

The GLG Solution

GLG tapped its network to identify two senior experts from leading global PPE manufacturers with decades of the experience in the industrial gloves space to lead the research work. Over the course of two months, team reviewed an extensive level of secondary data sources and conducted primary in-depth interviews with 14 other GLG Network Members across the supply chain (raw material suppliers, glove manufacturers, distributors, etc.) to corroborate the data points the secondary research produced.


The GLG team delivered a 100-page detailed analysis of the industrial gloves landscape, along with a comprehensive spreadsheet of market sizing data and 10-year forecasts.
