Cable Detector Market - Overview

A cable detector is a portable, handheld, battery-powered cable locator or wire tracer instrument. It is used to detect the presence and approximate location of cables behind the wall or ground. To perform these functions, it is not necessary to disconnect the power to the cable being tested or to disconnect electrically sensitive devices. Cable detector uses various types of technology such as metal detectors, signal generation, radio frequencies, ground penetrating radar, and magnetic fields for detection of cables. In case of underground cable detection, there are two types of cable location methods, they are active location, and passive location. In an active location method, a cable detector consist of two modules one is a transmitter and other is a receiver. A transmitter used in cable detector acts as an AC generator that supplies the signal current to the underground cable to trace it. The signal can be set to a particular frequency by the transmitter. This signal generates an electromagnetic field of the same frequency around the cable which can be then trace by a receiver. Whereas in passive location method, a cable detector is looking for unknown cables which is detected by electromagnetic field present around the cable with the help of a receiver module.

Cable Detector MarketTrends and Opportunities

One of the major driving factor for growth of the global cable detector market is increasing use of cable detector in various applications such as detection of underground cable, cables behind the wall, short circuit, and others. During detection of fault in underground cable, cable detector plays vital role as it is very difficult to locate a fault in underground cable as compared to overhead cable. The cable detectors calculate the distance at which fault has occurred and then further action regarding the fault can be taken to overcome the fault. Also, during excavation activities for laying water pipeline or oil pipeline and road construction, cable detectors are used to prevent underground cables from getting damage. Hence, with increase in activities such as laying of pipeline, and road construction, the demand for cable detector is also expected to increase in coming years. Moreover, in residential applications, such as to test wall sockets for which electrical plans is not available or to check live current in pre-installed wires behind the walls, and before making holes in ceilings, walls, and floors, cable detectors are used. Considering all these factors, with increase in use of cable detectors in residential applications, demand for cable detector is anticipated to show significant growth during forecast period.
