Heat Shrink Tubing And Sleeves Market Business Opportunities, Current Trends & Industry Analysis by Key Players & Forecast – 2028

VALLEY COTTAGE, N.Y. – Market Overview

The history of cable insulation dates way back to the late 18th century, when vulcanized rubber was used for insulation of wires to be used in high voltage circuits. It was then, in 1895, that mass impregnated paper insulated medium voltage cables became commercial for numerous applications. With advancements in technology, there were numerous other insulation materials being introduced to cope with the increasing demand for superior quality wire and cable insulation for use in high voltage applications. Furthermore, electrical wires are somewhat flexible, owing to which they require sheaths and insulation to withstand the forces of repeated abrasion and flexing. Attributing to this, heat shrink tubing and sleeves are becoming a popular alternative for insulation of cables and wires across the globe.
