Poor power infrastructure in India, the increasing use of electronic gadgets using portable batteries, low awareness of rural segment, the price sensitive nature of the rural segment would drive the Indian dry cell battery market and the flashlight market in the coming years. According to recently published report of Bonafide Research "India Dry Cell Battery & Flashlight Market Outlook, 2021", dry cell batteries are used in many applications such as toys, radios, flashlights etc. With more and more electronic products needing the use of batteries in India the demand is on an increasing stage. The concept of recycling of the used batteries is also one of the factors affecting the Indian market. Battery being a functional product, demand bears a very strong dependence on price. The volumetric sales are directly dependent on the increasing prices in India as the consumers are price sensitive. The dry cell battery is segmented into zinc carbon and alkaline technologies by technology division. The Indian dry cell battery market is expected to project cumulative growth of more than 10% in the coming five years till 2021. Flashlight is portable electric device that provides light and which runs on batteries. Usually the source of light is a small incandescent light bulb or light-emitting diode (LED). In addition to the general-purpose hand-held flashlight, many forms have been adapted for special uses. Head or helmet-mounted flashlights designed for miners and campers leave the hands free. Dry Cell Battery a device consisting of two or more electrochemical cells that convert stored chemical energy into electrical energy. Battery is primarily bifurcated into rechargeable and non-rechargeable batteries. Non- rechargeable mainly is also called primary batteries and dry cell batteries are a major segment in this market. The battery chemistry revolving the dry cell battery segment includes zinc carbon and alkaline typed batteries. Zinc carbon dominates the dry cell battery market in India. Organized dry cell battery market accounts for more than 90% of the Indian market. The dry cell batteries is basically used majorly in the rural segment as there is always lack of power supply in the rural segment of India. According to an association of Indian Dry cell manufacturers (AIDCM), the rural accounted for more than 65% of the dry cell batteries in 2014. The urban section majorly uses the dry cell batteries in their daily usage like flashlights, clocks, and other application which account for the balance. Nowadays, the urban people are looking forward to camps, expedition and other adventures which are accountable in the aforementioned share. The poor power infrastructure of India is one of the major reasons for the increasing share of the rural segment of the dry cell battery market of India. The increasing use of electronic gadgets running on portable power in both the segments will also drive the dry cell battery market in India.
