Hartalega likely to benefit from nitrile glove shortage


The shortage may lead to Hartalega Holdings Bhd, one of the world’s largest nitrile gloves producers, raising its average selling price (ASPs) “more aggressively” in the coming quarters, according to Maybank IB Research.

This may lead to Hartalega Holdings Bhd, one of the world’s largest nitrile gloves producers, raising its average selling price (ASPs) “more aggressively” in the coming quarters, according to Maybank IB Research.
