According to QYResearch, an independent market research & analytical agency, SST Group ranks second globally in terms of cable-based heating system production and is the only Russian manufacturer in the ranking.
The market report “Global Electric Heating Cable Market 2018 and Forecast up to 2026” examines the present condition and outlook for the global electric heating cable market by manufacturer, product type, and application area. The ranking lists 24 companies from North America, Europe, Japan, and China.
In late 2018, according to the QYResearch report, series-resistance heating cables held a share of approximately 30 % in the total global production of heating cables. Self-regulating heating cables have the strongest demand, accounting for 59 % of the total global production of heating cables. This cable type is used in heat tracing systems for pipelines, vessels, and process equipment in the oil and gas, mining, and other industries and in infrastructure projects to protect roofs, water drains, and outdoor areas from icing.
In Russia, the only full-cycle manufacturer of self-regulating heating cables is SST Group. SST Group launched 100 % local production back in 2015 at its manufacturing site in Ivanteevka, Moscow Region. The project is implemented with the support of the Industry Development Fund. In 2018, the Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation issued a certificate of full localization of the production of self-regulating cables by SST Group. A recognition of the company’s significant contribution to the development of the electrical engineering industry and the implementation of the national import phase-out program is the Dolivo-Dobrovolsky Memorial Award presented to the Group’s R&D team in 2019.
