The PIJF Cables are made up of number of insulated metallic conductors bunched in a compact form by providing mechanical protection and electrical insulation. These are cables in which the core is fully filled with petroleum jelly, a water-resistant compound that is called as jelly filled cable. The petroleum jelly offers excellent insulation, water resistance and fire resistance for each pair. These cables are made up of different layers. From top to bottom the sequence of layers of different materials are polythene insulated copper conductor, petroleum jelly, polyester tape, jelly flooding, poly-al-laminated tape, polythene inner sheath, polythene tape (double layer), galvanized steel tape (double layer) and polythene outer jacket. The PIJF cables is abbreviated name for “Polyethylene Insulated Jelly Filled” cables. There are various manufacturers in the global PIJF cables market that are providing their customers with different types PE/FS insulated jelly filled telephone underground cables. These cables are manufactured by highly skilled professionals using premium quality raw materials as per the predefined industry standards. The polyethylene material in the cables can be of the solid form, foam, and foam skin. These cables are generally used for inter exchange and for local network use. As well as this cable may be unarmored or armored type. PIJF cable are mostly applicable in axle counter and signaling purpose. Armored cable has an extra layer and it can also be of different types such as wire braid armor, single wire armor, and steel type armor for protection to keep it from being cut or abraded.
The global PIJF cables market has been segmented on the basis of type and application. Based on type, the global PIJF cables market has been segmented as armored and unarmored cables. The armored segment can be further classified into wire braid armor, single wire armor, and steel type
On the basis of applications the PIJF cables market can be classified into axle counter and signaling purpose. The use of these cables is mostly done in the railways, where underground axle counter and signaling is required.
The global PIJF cables market is mainly driven by some of the factors such as these cables are, ideally suited for extreme hot and cold weather conditions, ideal for water logging areas, failure of joints is less in the PIJF cables, and these are also easy to handle. The factor that can hinder the PIJF cables market are that it has very less bandwidth, since one can go up to 2 Mbps through DSL and ADSL. These are highly clear in communication. The opportunity for the market is that these PIJF cables can be used for a long period of time and has long life which is helped due the trending digitalization.
