The flashlight market in India is at a very niche stage. The segments in the flashlights market were traditionally determined by the materials used, namely plastic, brass, and aluminum. Historically, the ‘brass’ segment was the most popular among consumers, especially in rural areas. Usually, the source of light is a small incandescent light bulb or (LED). These new generation flashlights have witnessed robust sales during the initial two years of their launch in the market.
In addition to the general-purpose hand-held flashlight, many forms have been adapted for special uses. The new forms include the helmet-mounted flashlights, headgear lights, lanterns which serve a 360-degree lighting purpose without having to hold in hands. In extreme rural segments, the usage of non-rechargeable flashlights are more evident due to the lack of charging facilities. The government's efforts in making electricity reach every nook and corner of the country is proving successful, and thus reducing the market for the flashlights.

With its large presence in the global market, the same scenario also reflects in the Indian flashlight market.

The major end-users of flashlights are the rural segment wherein the power cut and outages are very frequent and they need an alternate support on a very daily basis. The growth of flashlight adaption has largely been supported by the rechargeable segment which grew at a CAGR of nearly 8% in volume terms till the year 2018-19. Rechargeable or secondary batteries, include lead-acid batteries, NiMH, NiCd batteries, and lithium-ion batteries. Along with a long usage period, availability in different sizes and features makes it more attractive.

The interest for the portable lighting source – flashlight - is relied upon to increment over the estimated period, which is going to support the Indian flashlight market.
