Thus, cables are becoming leaner and are designed with insulation and technical tricks for helping save space and to make the devices compact. Thus, these factors are driving growth of the market across the globe.

Global Cable Glands Market Restraints:

Fragmentation in regional markets to hamper the market pace

Several companies have been manufacturing cable glands for many years; however, due to the long time they have been in operations, several regional/local players are entering the market with relative ease to provide the cable glands at much lower costs compared to the existing market players. This has aided in developing a healthy competition in terms of development of safety, ingress, and other factors; it has however created fragmentation in the market. With the emergence of new manufacturers, the standards by which the cable glands were produced by earlier manufacturers, became diluted, as they focused solely on providing low cost alternative with no emphasis on standards. This has been restraining growth of the market as consumers looked for steady nomenclature for safety, production, and compatibility. However, certification systems such as ATEX, IEC Ex, NEC, UL, ISO, and BS are expected to address this issue, which will minimize the adverse impact of fragmentation on the market.

Unpredictability of raw material prices to impede the market pace

Cable glands are made from materials such as stainless steel, aluminum, nickel, brass, plastics, and others depending on the type of application. The cost of raw materials utilized in production of cable glands is significantly volatile, due to the cost of these materials depends heavily on the market scenario. In recent times, markets for materials such as aluminum and brass that are largely used raw materials in cable gland production, have witnessed fluctuation in their costs. Thus, changing cost of raw materials affect the production cost of cable glands, which in turn impacts adoption of these materials. This factor is therefore anticipated to restrain growth of the market in the coming future.

*Definition:

Cable Glands are an important part of electrical systems. They offer sealing protection to cables and wires. They are used in various applications including power connectors in buildings, junction boxes, and signaling cables. These glands are manufactured from brass or plastic. Some are also used in the oil and gas industry.

A cable gland has an inner component that has a rubber or elastomer seal. The inner part of the gland closes when the nut is tightened. This helps to prevent kinking of the cable and protects the line from corrosive elements. Besides preventing kinking, the rubber or elastomer seal on the cable gland can prevent water from entering the cable and the outside environment. Cable glands are a vital piece of equipment. The most common cable glands are made of metal and plastic. Stainless steel is a common choice for cable glands due to its resistance to corrosion, aggressive cleaning agents, and other external influences. Plastic cable glands are reusable, and they are less susceptible to corrosive elements.
