  • While Riverstone's management has shared that ASPs will be lowered to pass on cost savings from raw materials, they have also announced successful client acquisitions from the pharmaceutical sector. The impact of lower ASPs will likely be offset by higher volumes from both Riverstone's semiconductor customers and new clients, pointing to top-line growth for the cleanroom glove segment in 2024.

Recent 3Q23 results signal potential turnaround in 2024.
