Explosion-proof Cable Glands Market Overview:
The cable gland also known as cable connector is a device designed to connect electrical devices, which provides support, sealing, retention, insulation, and earthing. Explosion proof cable glands, also known as sealing glands or strain reliefs that facilitate barrier penetration and offer sealing protection. They can be utilized with probes, wires, power, and signaling cables. Manufacturers offer an extensive range of Explosion-proof cable glands depending upon material, mode of utilization, cable size, type of cable, pressure range and others.
Explosion-proof cable glands are used to increase safety in hazardous environment with features such as high load bearing capacity and robust design. Apart from sealing wires and cables, these glands provide other functions such as earthing, environmental protection, ingress protection, and strain relief.
Increase in the number of refineries and rise in need for safety, drive the explosion-proof cable glands market. In addition, wide applications in various sectors that include oil & gas, mining, chemicals, manufacturing & processing, and others. However, high material cost restricts the growth of the market.
