Industrial hand gloves serve as an item of protective apparel for workers in factories. Hand gloves are of various types and sizes.

Leather, however, since supreme in the production of industrial hand gloves. Amongst leather chrome tanned split leather is predominantly in use possibly because of its cheap price and peculiar qualities needed for hand gloves as compared to other kind of leather.

Such industrial gloves are widely used in industry, Railway and Defence. Due to rapid industrialization and expansion of railway the use of industrial hand gloves is expected to grow considerably.

Market Potential

Looking to the internal and external demand it appears that we are not in a position to cope with the demand and as such there is a good scope for starting new units for manufacture of industrial hand gloves. Fortunately the raw material is available in the country especially split leather due to increase in production of finished leather based on hides.

Basis and Presumptions

  • The production is based on a double shift, where shift is of 8 hours per day and 25 working days in a month.
  • Time period for achieving full capacity utilisation is 3 years.
  • Labour will be engaged on monthly basis keeping in view the present rate prevailing in the market.
  • Rate of interest for fixed and working capital @ 12% per annum.
  • Margin Money, 25%
  • Land and Building, own. Builtup area, 100 Sq. meters.

Implementation Schedule

It will take one year to complete all the formalities before starting the commercial production.

Technical Aspects

Process of Manufacture

The leather is checked for uniform thickness, holes and flying cuts, if any. It is then marked with the pattern and then cut with the help of scissors or clicking knife into different components. After stitching all the components suitably, the gloves are turned inside out. The gloves are then ready for packing and despatch.
