All LED-based flashlights are included in this study, unless mentioned otherwise. LED flashlights, which are used as a work or task light; however, only the flashlight unit (itself) is counted, not any value-added components. A flashlight-based work/task light (not necessarily professional work) is a flashlight with valued-added accessories added permanently or detachable, which are designed to accommodate the specific needs of a related task, as discussed in some examples below:
Hooks or clamps or straps or casing-design are added to the flashlight for the specific reason for hand-free operation; case design examples include: swivel lamp-heads; self-standing design, beam adjustments, others - the following are a few application examples:
Specific features added, such as (examples):
For flashlights that are equipped to wear on the head; for example in - sports, surgery/medical, in the mining industry and other hands-free use, the flashlight unit is included, plus internal recharging units and cord to an external battery module, and the external battery module (without batteries) are included in the pricing data; this is also true for flashlight brackets or clamps for guns, bicycles, other.
Items not included in the overall price of the products, in this study:
Market analysis and technology forecasting are complex tasks. Any predictions of the shape and trends of technology and economic movement start from the notion that the germ of what will be important tomorrow is present, although smaller or larger or in a different form, in our environment today. However, taking as a basis for a prediction the assumptions of current, conventional belief creates a set of preconceived notions that can lead to serious mistakes. ElectroniCast, instead, looks to the basic driving forces.
The future market for a particular type of flashlight consumed in general purpose (household), as well as commercial/industrial and harsh environment, military/ aerospace, emergency services and law enforcement applications depends on a number of factors, including: User equipment demand, back-up lighting due to power failures, various work-related tasks and recreational purposes, as well in conjunction with explosion and dangerous environments and various other circumstances.
This study is based on analysis of information obtained continually over the past several years, but updated through the middle of March 2018. During this period, ElectroniCast analysts performed interviews with selected authoritative and representative individuals in the flashlight manufactures and brand distributors, as well as LED manufacturing (materials, chips, packaging, devices, and associated parts/pieces, and fittings/fixtures), other light sources and military/aerospace, law enforcement and other first responders, communication, automotive, medical services, R&D, and government regulating authorities, as well as power sources (batteries and capacitors). The interviews were conducted principally with:
The interviews covered issues of technology, R&D support, pricing, contract size, reliability, documentation, installation/maintenance crafts, standards, supplier competition and other topics.
A full review of published information was also performed to supplement information obtained through interviews. The following sources were reviewed:
In analyzing and forecasting the complexities of the American market for flashlights, it is essential that the market research team have a good and a deep understanding of the technology and of the industry. ElectroniCast members who participated in this report were qualified.
ElectroniCast forecasts are developed initially at the lowest detail level, and then summed to successively higher levels. The background market research focuses on the amount of each type of product used in each application in the base year (last year: 2017), and the prices paid at the first transaction from the manufacturer. This forms the base year data.
ElectroniCast analysts then forecast the growth rates in component quantity use in each application, along with price trends, based on competitive, economic and technology forecast trends, and apply these to derive long term forecasts at the lowest application levels. The usage growth rate forecasts depend heavily on analysis of overall end user trends toward equipment usage and economic payback.
