Cable Connectors and Glands Market Outlook – 2027 

Cable connector and gland is a mechanical cable entry device that is designed to be attached and secure end of an electrical cable. These components have smooth external finish or texture that prevents build-up of foreign contaminants and allows to be cleaned easily by water or steam jets. Cable glands provide strain-relieved, safe passage to electric cables entering or exiting any enclosure hence preventing twisting and wear & tear of cables. 

Cable glands or connectors are widely used in the construction industry to provide electrical power and smooth and reliable control with cable sealing effect. In addition, these are used as connectors for data cables and telecom towers in the telecommunication industry as they feature high efficiency, rapid production efficiency, and better sound absorption performance along with long span of service life. 

UV resistant cable glands protect pipelines from corrosion in the oil & gas industry as they have strong moisture-proof performance and high temperature resistance with excellent insulation performance, which proves these ideal for toxic and hazardous environment. Ongoing advancements to improve high load bearing capacity and robust design of connectors, while offering sealing protection to ensure safety in harmful environments imply that the cable connectors and glands market share would undergo a considerable growth in the coming years.

The global cable connectors and glands market is segmented on the basis of type, cable type, material type, application, industry vertical, and region. Based on type, the cable connectors and glands market is bifurcated into hazardous area cable glands and industrial cable glands. In terms of cable type, the market is categorized into armored and unarmored. On the basis of material type, the market is divided into
brass, stainless steel, plastic, aluminum, nylon, nickel, and others. 

In terms of application, the cable connectors and glands market is categorized into control boxes, skids, motors, lighting, data cables, and others. On the basis of industry vertical, the market is segregated into oil & gas, mining, chemical, aerospace & defense, industrial, energy & power, automotive, and others. Geographically, the market is analyzed across several regions such as North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and Latin America, Middle East & Africa (LAMEA).

Top Impacting Factors

Surge in necessity of robust, secure connection to protect pipelines, and surface machinery from corrosion, owing to harmful climatic reactions in the oil & gas refinery sector as well as use of explosion-proof cable for underground mining to ensure safety during drilling operation majorly drives the cable connectors and glands market growth. However, fluctuating volatile prices of essential raw materials such as plastics, copper, and iron alloy and high material cost than equivalent cold and heat shrink terminations tend to restrain the cable connectors and glands market growth.

Contrarily, increase in demand of industrial grade cable glands for proper transmission of power, earthing, insulation, and cable guarding to fulfil rise energy demands in construction infrastructure development, owing to surge in real estate further boosts the cable connectors and glands market growth. Technological advancements in cable gland production as well as government regulations regarding upgradation and renewal of existing networks are anticipated to pave new avenues to cable connectors and glands industry.

New Product Launches to Flourish the Market

The global leading cable connectors and glands market players have adopted necessary steps to produce superior environmental seals as well as safe and reliable cable cleats for both project infrastructure as their essential role in cable management systems becomes increasingly recognized.

In February 2020, CMP Products Ltd., specialist manufacturer of cable glands, cable cleats, launched Saturn (QSDSS), a new quad cable cleat range, which has a high short circuit rating of 152kA and enables cables to be installed safely in quad formation. Cleats protect integrity of cables and cable management system while maintaining high level of restraints. 

This cable cleat range is built using 316L stainless steel with compact design for space-constrained projects and provides high strength, corrosion resistance, hence making it suitable for harsh environments including data centers, rail, energy industries, and power plants.

In addition, CMP Ltd. developed Venus (QPSS) cable cleat with short circuit rating of 135kA. It is integrated with C-clamp and bolt and provides versatile, compact solutions of installation as it can be installed in a variety of applications where quadruplex cable is fitted. 

Surge in Use of DCPs in Automotive and Industrial Applications

Less smoke and no halogen cables with anti-vermin and anti-termite are used for construction of pipelines in oil & gas refineries. In addition, optical low or medium voltage cable armored with steel tape are used in liquefaction trains to transport LNG as they help in energy saving with fire protection properties and excellent deformation resistance.

In February 2020, Amphenol Sine Systems, global leader in electrical connector manufacturing, introduced the HYPERBUSS AT series and ATV series of receptacle connectors, which are available in 2, 4, 6, 8, 12, and 18 position receptacles. These high-performance, cost-effective solutions are intermate with respective industry standard connectors and contain superior seals and seal retention capabilities. These receptacle connectors feature rectangular thermoplastic housing and wedge lock that confirms contact alignment and retention. 

In addition, these are IP67 rated with operating temperature range of -55 to +1250C. This HYPERBUSS family of receptacle connectors consists of sealed integrated bussed feedback assembly and are used in interconnect applications where common bussed electrical pathway is required such as heavy duty, transportation, marine, military, alternative energy, and agricultural sectors.
