Global Cable Glands Market: Overview
A cable gland is a device designed to attach and secure the end of an electric cable to the equipment. Cable glands, also known as sealing glands or strain reliefs, allow the barrier penetration while offering sealing protection. They can be utilized in probes, wires, and power and signaling cables. Manufacturers offer a wide range of cable glands depending on material, mode of utilization, cable size, type of cable, and pressure range.
Cable glands are designed with a completely smooth external surface with a rounded surface so as to prevent accumulation of foreign contaminants such as bacteria or dust. Cable glands have no sharp edges or bare bolting threads. Due to their smooth surface finish, cable glands used for getting washed quickly by water or steam jets. The advancement in technology and applications has driven the demand for cable glands. Cable glands are used in applications in pharmaceutical labs, semiconductor manufacturing, and in industries such as food & dairy processing, chemical production, and chemical processing.
Global Cable Glands Market: Key Segments
Based on cable type, the cable glands market can be classified into armored cable glands and unarmored cable glands. Based on material type, the market can be divided into brass, aluminum, plastic, and stainless steel. Brass is the most widely used material for manufacture of cable glands, due to its essential properties which makes it suitable for use in the industrial environment. Aluminum and stainless steel are also being increasingly used in the production of cable glands. Aluminum is the abundant metal, while stainless steel offers several benefits such as temperature and pressure insulation.
Based on end-user industry, the Cable Glands Market has been segmented into aerospace, construction, manufacturing, processing, oil & gas, and power & utilities. The large-scale upgrade and construction of oil refineries is driving the demand for cable management tools across the globe. Power & utilities has traditionally been a major end-user of cable glands market. The construction segment is expected to highest CAGR, followed by the aerospace segment, during the forecast period.
