NEW YORK, April 26, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Cable Glands are mechanical cable entry modules that facilitate barrier penetration and provide sealing. They are also known as strain reliefs or sealing glands and can enclose multiple wires and cables. Apart from sealing wires and cables, cable glands provide other functions such as earthing, environmental protection, ingress protection and strain relief.
The purpose of cable gland is to seal the cables/wires and retain it in the electrical equipment where it is being integrated. Therefore, compliance with standards is of utmost importance for cable glands including Ingress Protection, Material Selection, Cable Pull-Out Resistance, Electromagnetic Interference and few others. The standards for cable glands utilized in both industrial and hazardous locations. For instance, the initial standards for cable glands created were in U.K. called as GDCD 190 which eventually was superseded by BS 4121 and later BS 6121. But the scope of these standards were not sufficient for cable glands performance, hence European Standard EN 5062 was published in 1999. IEC 62444 has been the latest evolution in cable glands standards that will have profound impact on the global cable glands industry as countries are rapidly harmonizing their respective industrial equipment standards with IEC standards.
Considering the standards for cable glands based on several aforementioned parameters, the market in the Cable Glands report has been classified on following criteria: type of cable glands, type of cables, type of materials, industry verticals and geographies. The types of cable glands have been categorized into industrial and hazardous cable glands considering their mode of utilization. Both of these cable glands differ in their standards, fabrication and end-use applications.
Gradually, the market for cable glands has been presented on the basis of materials and cable types. The brass has remained the dominant material for manufacturing cable glands followed by other metallic and non-metallic materials while the cable glands market has been segregated into armored and unarmored/non-armored type cables.
The market for cable glands has also been explored on the basis of several industry verticals. There are various industries that have been taken account of while analyzing the cable glands market to establish the relation between the other segmentation parameters and end-use applications. The salient industries classified for this market incorporate manufacturing and processing industries, power & utilities, chemicals, aerospace, oil & gas, mining and few others.
The market based on geography has been primarily classified into Americas, Europe, Asia-Pacific and Rest of the World (RoW) which has been eventually further sorted into significant countries from the perspective of cable glands industry. The report has also focused on the dominant manufacturers of cable glands both at global and local levels. The respective profiles for the companies provided in the report consists of business overview, financials, product portfolio and developments pertaining to cable glands while a strategy analysis has also been carved out for top players in the market.
