The business world today has gone beyond the requirement to stay competitive against peers within the same industry, as it is getting more popular in which other sector’s non-specialists are coming into your sector to share a pie from the market.

Especially in the glove production industry, in which Malaysia can enjoy mass supply at an affordable raw material cost since we are one of the countries in the whole world that can enjoy plenty of and also the top largest numbers of rubber tree plantation suppliers to other nations too. A rubber glove is undoubtedly the star performing product and its players are all doing well to carry out a lot of share buybacks, high dividend to shareholders to many of them get dual-listing in other stock exchanges of the world; in addition to that, they are also major players who venture into other industries since they have piled up cash to utilize with.
