Global Cable Glands Market 2017-2021

About Cable Glands

Cable glands are used to provide a safe passage to electrical cables entering or exiting any enclosure or at the point of connection. These devices help secure the wires or cables against damage and can even be used to seal the internal environment of any electrical equipment against external factors such as dirt, liquids, and gases. A typical cable gland usually consists of a lock nut, washer, body, seal, and sealing nut. A double compression cable gland consists of the following components: check nut, entry sealing ring, nipple entry part, inner sealing ring, armor clamping cone, armor clamping ring, main gland body, outer seal ring, and compression nut. Cable glands are most commonly used at the entry points of electrical junction boxes and cable connectors. These glands are bolted at the entry/exit points in junction boxes and at the entry of the connector, and the cable passes through the cable gland without having any actual connection to the enclosure. The demand for cable glands mostly arises from industrial or commercial end-users, where maintaining the electrical wires and keeping them isolated is of prime importance.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global cable glands market to grow at a CAGR of 6.13% during the period 2017-2021.

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Cable Glands market 2017-2021

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global cable glands market: Amphenol Industrial Products, Caledonian Cables (Addison Cables), CMP Products, Cortem, and Eaton

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: ABB, Axis Communications, BARTEC, BEISIT ELECTRIC, bimed, CCG Cable Terminations, Dowell's, and Elsewedy Electric.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is Rising demand for hygienic cable glands. Hygienic cable glands are being increasingly used in applications in the food and dairy processing industry, pharmaceutical labs, cleanrooms for semiconductor manufacturing, and the chemical production and processing industry. These cable glands are designed with a completely smooth external finish or texture, and a rounded surface so that the buildup of foreign contaminants such as bacteria or dust is prevented. They are usually made of 316/316L stainless steel. These cable glands have no sharp edges or exposed bolting threads, which are known to accumulate dirt easily. Also, due to the smooth surface finish, hygienic cable glands can be cleaned much more quickly using water or steam jets.”

According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is Rise in global construction activities. The increase in global construction activities is expected to be a major factor driving the demand for cable glands during the forecast period. Cable glands are used extensively in junction boxes, electrical panels, and with power connectors in buildings. Hence, the growth in new building constructions will directly affect the demand for cable glands.

Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is Volatility in raw material prices. The volatility in raw material prices represents one of the biggest challenges for cable gland manufacturers, as it may lead to a significant profit margin erosion or lower sales for vendors. As most players sell undifferentiated products and compete in the market based on price, any significant change in raw material prices becomes a risk to cable gland manufacturers.
