Top Glove close to controlling 30% of global market

Aspion buy gives Malaysian company access to premium surgical glove sector

Top glove's product line

KUALA LUMPUR -- Top Glove on Monday said it would be a step nearer to achieving its goal of controlling 30% of the global rubber glove market if it succeeded in acquiring rival Aspion. 

The Malaysian group, currently the world's largest producer of the product used widely in households to the healthcare industry announced on Friday it was in negotiations to buy the entire whole of Aspion. The buy, estimated to cost at least 1.2 billion ringgit ($292 million), would give the group immediate access to the specialized surgical glove market, a niche and premium segment that the group hoped to reach.
