Sheath Materials Market

Sheath Materials Market: Global Industry Analysis and Opportunity Assessment 2016-2026

Market Insights on Sheath Materials covering sales outlook, demand forecast & up-to-date key trends

Sheath Materials Market Overview

A sheath can be defined as a protective covering around an electrical wire or as a closed fitting cover for a knife or sword. The sheath around a knife is usually made up of leather, plastic, nylon or kydex. However, the sheath used in cable wire are usually made up of metals, non-metals and alloys like lead, aluminium, titanium,  stainless steel, carbon steel, incoloy, hastelloy-x (iron, chromium, molybdenum) etc.

A sheath material should be resistant enough to hold the knife with sharp blades while the knife is not in use. Moreover, the sheath ought to be solidly constructed, it should have a snug fit so that the knife blade doesn’t get dislodged by accident. For the cable wires, material should be selected on the basis of maximum allowable sheath temperature, material being heated and required corrosion resistance. 

The market for sheath materials is expected to have a positive growth rate over the forecast period, due to numerous factors such as its significant fire resistant properties and physical strength, thereby increasing the efficiency of products. The global sheath materials market is expected to witness a moderate growth during the forecast period.

Sheath Materials Market Dynamics

One of the major driver impacting the growth of sheath materials market is its excellent properties such as high resistance to heat, moisture and other external factors which could otherwise damage the products. Due to increase in efficiency and durability of products sheath materials are highly used, thus having a positive impact on the global sheath materials market.

The plastic and Kydex sheath effect the sharpness of knife blade and hence are very less preferred. This in turn is expected to restrain the growth of global sheath materials market.

The major trends observed in the global sheath materials market are the use of PVC (Polyvinyl chloride) due to its low cost, high physical strength, and good flame resistant properties. Over the past few years, the consumption of Kydex (thermoplastic acrylic-polyvinyl chloride materials) has increased significantly.
