Heating cable market forecast, trends and growth opportunities till 2027 – press release – digital journal data recovery best buy

Rockville, MD — ( SBWIRE) — 06/13/2018 — The global market discussion on Heating Cable can be found in an upcoming report titled " Heating Cable Market Forecast, Trend Analysis & Competition Tracking – Global Review 2018 to 2027", which is going to be published in the wide database of Fact.MR. Heating cables or trace heat cables or heat tape are generally used for applications such as freeze protection, pipe heat tracing, viscosity control, temperature maintenance, anti-condensation, roof & roof gutter heating, and preventing cavitation. These applications can be residential, commercial, or industrial, and thus present broader opportunities in multiple industries, including pharmaceutical, petrochemical, oil & gas, power generation, food processing, and several other refineries.


Heating cables are broadly classified into two types, constant wattage heating cables and self-regulating heating cables. These categories are based on power supply and temperature variation. Constant wattage cables are composed of multiple constant electric power zones, whereas self-regulating heat cables have controlled power supply to the points across defined lengths of the cable. According to the end-user application, a specific type of heating cable is used. Further, manufacturers follow international standards, including IEEE standards 515 and 622, British standard BS 6351, and IEC standard 60208 in the design and installation of electric trace heating systems.

Heating cables or trace heat tape is extensively used in residential construction, particularly in water pipes, flooring, roofs, windows, and in door and frame interfaces. They are usually installed with the intention of freezing protection and temperature maintenance. Particularly in colder regions where extreme temperatures obstruct water flow or burst pipes, electric freeze protection systems are installed. In roofs and gutters, these cables are installed for de-icing. In windows and other glass doorways, they are installed for de-misting or removal of condensation. Further, electric surface snow melting systems are installed in ramps, access ways, and footpaths for snow removal.

In addition, manufacturers have introduced heating solutions for concrete curing, especially for colder regions. For instance, Oglaend System has introduced concrete curing and frost protection solutions for regions such as Norway, where concrete construction becomes difficult during winter temperature that reaches -10oC.

The oil & gas industry consistently improves processing as well as extraction methods to enhance production efficiency. Differences in onshore as well as offshore environments present new challenges to the industry, such as smaller extraction fields with complex fluids and transportation of multiphase production over long distances. Failure to appropriately address these challenges can lead to significant intervention costs and substantial production revenue losses. On account of this, active heating technologies are widely accepted in onshore applications, whereas, subsea pipeline electrical heating and self-regulating heating systems are more popular in offshore applications to manage flow assurance. With declining oil & gas resources, efficient extraction and processing is a primary concern. For this, the demand for heating cable systems is projected to remain steady in the oil & gas industry.

Due to the energy efficiency of self-regulating heating cables, their popularity outweighs the demand for constant heating cables, and hence, a majority of manufacturers offer self-regulating heating solutions. They are installed for a variety of applications in residential homes as well as commercial buildings. Further, self-regulating heating cables are highly effective against frost damage in pipework, and safer due to controlled heating. In addition, self-regulating systems are also installed at roof gutters, stairways, walkways, and other snow-exposed construction objects. Owing to such high demand, manufacturers have introduced flexible and versatile self-regulating freeze protection systems with reduced operational costs.

– Thermon Group Holdings, Inc. completed the acquisition of Thermal Technologies, Inc. in 2017. As Thermon is a word leader of highly engineered thermal solutions, this acquisition will expand its existing product portfolio and production capacities of heating solutions.
