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 barrier penetration while offering sealing protection. They can be used 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.
The cable gland is designed with a completely smooth outer surface and a round surface to prevent the accumulation of foreign contaminants such as bacteria or dust. The cable gland has no sharp edges or exposed bolt threads. The surface of the cable gland is smooth and can be cleaned quickly with water or steam jet. The advancement of technology and the increase in the number of applications are driving the demand for cable joints. Cable joints are used in pharmaceutical laboratories, semiconductor manufacturing, and food and dairy processing, chemical production, and chemical processing industries.
During the forecast period, the increase in global construction activities is expected to be the main factor driving the demand for cable glands. Cable glands are widely used in junction boxes, switchboards and power connectors in buildings. Therefore, during the forecast period, the increase in the construction of new buildings may increase the demand for cable joints.
Due to government reasons, upgrades and updates of existing networks; regulations; expansion of the construction industry; increased global energy demand; growth in the real estate industry is expected to promote the development of the cable joint market in the near future.
Based on cable materials, the brass part dominates the global cable joint market in 2020. It is expected to continue to dominate during the forecast period. Cable glands made of nickel-plated brass are widely used in the petrochemical and oil and gas industries because they provide excellent protection against pollution and corrosion in harsh environments. Aluminum and stainless steel are also increasingly used in the production of cable glands. Aluminum is an abundant metal, while stainless steel has many advantages, such as temperature and pressure insulation.
In terms of demand in 2020, the oil and gas industry is a very important part of the global market. It is expected to expand at a significant rate during the forecast period.
Large-scale upgrades and construction of oil refineries are driving global demand for cable management tools (including cable glands). Traditionally, power and utilities have been the main end users of the global cable gland market.
Fluctuations in raw material prices and fierce competition in the market are expected to affect manufacturers in the near future. Cable joint manufacturers plan to expand their geographic coverage to attract new consumers and reduce dependence on third-party suppliers.
The cessation of manufacturing activities in various end-use industries has weakened the demand for various products including cable glands. The decline in construction activities and manufacturing capacity has adversely affected the demand for cable management tools. This has had a negative impact on the cable gland market. However, the gradual recovery of the economy and the stability of the entire market depend on the COVID-19 epidemic process and subsequent recovery of manufacturing activities, which may increase the demand for cable joints in the near future.
In conclusion, this analysts proves that cable gland sales will continue to grow in the next five years, affecting all regions and all industries. Over the years, the regions producing cable glands have changed significantly. With the loss of manufacturing facilities in the United States, Europe, Japan and the rest of the world, China has gained market share. The events in 2020 have led many countries to reconsider their offshore strategy, and we may see a renewed focus on the supply chain in the coming years.
