Segmental Analysis

The market is segmented by product type, technology, installation, and industry vertical.

Based on product type, the global market is bifurcated into cable joints and splices, connectors, separable, terminations, and others.

The cable joints and splice segment is the highest contributor to the market and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.1% during the forecast period. Electricity is transmitted over long distances using cable joints to maintain the continuity of the cables. They must fit perfectly and be sturdy to withstand various conditions, including bad weather, connection voltage drops, current capacities, and material compatibility. A splice joins two or more conductors to create a mechanical and permanent electrical bond and can be finished using either the crimping or soldering procedure. Cable joints are used to join cables of different voltages together. These provide mechanical protection, electrical insulation, and cable strength. For connecting cables over long distances, cable joints are therefore necessary.

Electro-mechanical connectors serve as an interface to connect electrical circuits. These are made up of plugs with male ends and female ends for jacks and can be used to temporarily and permanently join circuits. Connectors come in various forms, including NEMA connectors, multiphase power plugs/sockets, and DC connectors. These connectors' primary purpose is to shield users from unintentional electric shock. Connectors are used in many types of equipment, including consumer electronics, military, space, and medical devices.

Based on technology, the global market is bifurcated into heat shrink, cold shrink, and pre-molded terminations.

The heat shrink segment owns the highest market share and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.9% during the forecast period. A material in the shape of a plastic tube that has been artificially expanded is used in heat shrink technology. When heat is applied, the tube contracts to protect cable junctions and terminations from moisture, dust, and other debris. Heat shrink technology is the insulation method that is most frequently used for medium-voltage cable accessories. With this technology, installing cable accessories takes much less time. However, it cannot be pre-tested in manufacturing facilities and requires a hot gun during installation. In addition, heat shrink cable accessories can be used for both protection and cosmetic changes. Heat shrink technology is anticipated to grow as a result of an increase in demand for cable accessories, dominating the market during the forecast period.

Materials with high elasticity at room temperatures, like silicone and rubber, are used in cold shrink technology. Except for the need for heat, this technology offers similar functionality to heat shrink technology. There are many uses for cold shrink technology, including in electrical installations and power systems. It is widely used when insulating wires, joints, connections, or terminals is necessary. It is also appropriate for operations with restricted installation space, particularly in industrial applications.

Based on the installation, the global market is bifurcated into overhead, underground, and submarine.

The overhead segment is the highest contributor to the market and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 3.5% during the forecast period.
