Furthermore, the report provides a quantitative and qualitative analysis of the cable joints market, as well as a breakdown of the pain points, value chain analysis, and key regulations. 

Waterproof cable joints are intended to maintain the continuity of electrical cable over long distances by joining and thus enabling the transmission of electricity. Cable joints must fit precisely and be strong enough to withstand factors such as adverse weather conditions, current carrying capacity, connection voltage drop, and material compatibility. The growth of high and medium-voltage power cable joints in emerging economies such as China, Japan, India, South Korea, Brazil, and other, owing to rise in demand for industrialization, urbanization, and more is showing significant growth prospects for the market in the coming years. 

The voltage level of the cable joint must be the same as the voltage level of the cable. Owing to the high current carrying capacity and over-voltage, if the capacity of the cable joint is less than that of the cable, it cannot work. In addition, the insulation of the cable joint must be compatible with the insulation of the cable. Cable joints can be cold or heat-shrinkable, depending on the purpose of the cable and its insulation.
