According to Technavio analysts, one of the key drivers for the global cable ties market is the increasing demand for metal detectable cable ties from the food and pharmaceutical industries:Food and pharmaceutical products are sealed with metal detectable cable ties to prevent these consumables from getting contaminated and degraded. Metal detectable cable ties contain a small amount of metal and hence can be detected by metal detectors, X-ray equipment, and safety scanners. For instance, if a small part of the cable tie falls into the product, it can be easily detected during the further processing of the products.
According to a senior analyst at Technavio for research on packaging, “Metal detectable cable ties are available in a variety of materials such as polypropylene and nylon with metal inclusion. Owing to their buoyancy, the polypropylene cable ties are more suitable for liquid processing applications. Additionally, for easy detection in the food processing industry, these cable ties are usually available in bright blue color.”china import
