Interesting. How and where is it used?
I do not have that allergy (that I know of) but I never know when I will meet someone with it.
Where and how is it purchased?

Nitrile gloves are now being sold in places like Sam's Club, Harbor Freight, and AutoZone. They have been around for a couple of decades for mechanics to keep automotive grunge off their hands while retaining tactile sensitivity and grip of objects. I ordered some nitrile rubber bands on-line. There are even nitrile condoms out there.

They are starting to use nitrile in other applications such as mechanical drive belts, because it is resistant to oils and greases and even gasoline to some extent.

She also has a cross-allergy to neoprene and some other synthetic rubbers materials, including contact reactions with car tires. The odor in most tire stores is enough to cause a reaction.

I saw some in a market this week.

I found a picture in the phone this weekend that was taken in November. It showed several full pallets of nitrile gloves at I think either Sam's or Harbor Freight. And I thought "I've got enough to finish the projects around the house" and didn't buy any then.

I just wish I'd had a good crystal ball to look ahead 3 months and I'd have made a different decision that Sunday after Black Friday.

I had some I never used.  They weren’t even opened.

Wow. Never opened. Well there's some available now as a result.

How often did we need gloves before this hit?

Well before this hit maybe quarterly or so.

There's going to probably be permanent shortages.

I was watching somet videos about the cruise ship industry and how misguided governmental actions turned them into toxic Petri dishes of Covid-19 with desperate passengers and crew sometimes jumping overboard rather than be trapped on the ship.

People jumped off ships recently?  I don’t think there is currently a shortage of nitrile type gloves but I can’t find a pair of dishwashing gloves in my market,
