Heat Shrink Tubing Market: Growth Drivers and Challenges

Growth Drivers

  • Rising Demand for Smartphones and Laptops - Heat shrink tubing is available in a variety of diameters, colors, and materials, which are a fundamental component of most electrical setups. Moreover, heat shrink tubings may become more and more necessary as computers and smartphones get smaller and more complicated to ensure proper insulation, protection, and organization of wiring and components within the devices. For instance, in 2022, more than 65% of smartphones were used worldwide.
  • Growing Production of Automobiles- Automobile heat shrink tubing is a crucial part of car wiring systems and is a fantastic way to manage cables and keep the car organized. For instance, in 2022, more than 85 million motor vehicles were produced around the world.
  • Increasing Applications in the Food and Beverage Industry- Heat Shrink Tubing is fungus and UV-resistant for use in the food and beverage industry and is used in packaging food wrapping to form-fitting wire insulation.
  • Surging Marine Sector- Maritime-grade heat shrink tubing offers a waterproof seal against common maritime elements and is used to protect the electrical wires and cables in yachts, boats, cruisers, and jet skis.
  • Expanding Production of Aircrafts- The spaceship or airplane wire systems are shielded from harsh environments and conditions by heat shrink tubing, which is almost everywhere on an airplane, and it can communicate with the EWIS components.
  • Use of Heat Shrink Tubing in the Oil and Gas Industry- Oil and gas pipes are protected against corrosion by heat shrink tubing which is also known to provide an excellent method of encasing and preserving core samples for oil and gas exploration.


  • Fluctuations in Prices of Raw Materials – Heat shrink tubing is a thermoplastic tubing that is commonly made from polyolefin. Polyolefin is a family of thermoplastics that includes polyethylene and polypropylene. Moreover, natural gas and petroleum are the sources of polyolefins as a result, these materials' prices vary together with those of crude oil and natural gas.
  • Stringent regulatory standards associated with toxic emissions
  • Availability of alternatives may impact the adoption of heat shrink tubings

Heat Shrink Tubing Segmentation

Voltage (Low, Medium, High)

The low segment in the heat shrink tubing market is estimated to gain a robust revenue share of 43% in the coming years. The premium cross-inked polyolefin material is used to make low-voltage shrinkable tubings which are extensively utilized in many different types of wire harnesses, solder connections, inductor insulation, metal pipes, corrosion, and rod rusting. One of the most popular low-voltage heat shrink tubings is the vinyl PVC insulating tape that is sturdy and sufficiently resistant to both high and low temperatures.

To successfully minimize human casualty accidents caused by exposed live parts, low-voltage heat shrink busbar insulation tubing can be widely utilized to insulate low-voltage switchgear busbars from damage, and can prevent short circuits and discharge faults brought on by tiny animals contacting wires.

In addition, a heat-shrinkable tubing with a medium wall can be used to insulate busbars in switches and is ideal for usage underground or around buried wires.

Material (Polyolefin, Per Fluoroalkoxy Alkane (PFA), Poly Tetra Fluoro Ethylene (PTFE), Ethylene Tetra Fluoro Ethylene (ETFE), Fluorinated Ethylene Propylene (FEP), Polyether Ether Ketone (PEEK))

The polyolefin segment in the heat shrink tubing market is set to garner a notable share shortly. Popular cross-linked protective tubing with good mechanical and physical qualities is polyolefin resin heat shrink tubing which is a general-purpose, flexible heat shrink tubing that can be used for a wide range of applications, including military and professional electronics, and is designed to be split-resistant, and cold flow resistant.
