The portable lighting market is developing stably, and LED light sources have become a new hot spot in the industry.

Portable lighting refers to a small, lightweight, and mobile lighting product. It is generally a hand-held electronic lighting tool. It belongs to a branch of the lighting industry and occupies an indispensable position in modern life. From the perspective of development, the development of portable mobile lighting products can be traced back to the initial stage of human social development - the primitive society. Since the humans learned to drill wood for fire, mobile lighting has experienced a history of development from fire, oil, candles to electronic lighting. Mobile lighting tools have undergone countless changes, including torches, oil lamps, candles, kerosene lamps to incandescent light bulbs, Xenon bulbs, and the development of LED flashlights, emergency lights, miner's lamps, headlights, etc.

Whether it is daily life, work, industrial production, engineering construction, road traffic, etc., portable lighting appliances are widely used. Its development is mainly driven by two major factors:

Frequent disasters cause social problems and power security is threatened

In recent years, natural and social disasters have occurred frequently around the world. For example, the Indian Ocean tsunami that occurred in 2004 caused 150,000 deaths and hundreds of thousands of people were homeless; in 2005, the South Asia earthquake caused more than 3 million people to be homeless; in 2010, the Haiti earthquake killed 110,000 people. More than 3 million people became refugees; the 2011 Japanese tsunami.

Frequent natural disasters have caused great damage to public facilities such as power facilities in the disaster areas. The power facilities are in a state of paralysis, which poses a huge obstacle to the development of emergency response work in the disaster areas. The shortage of electricity has also brought great difficulties to the daily life of the people in the disaster areas. The inconvenience of portable lighting fixtures as a supplementary measure to the power supply after the disaster has played an irreplaceable role in the rapid development of disaster relief work and the maintenance of basic daily lighting. Portable lighting fixtures have also been widely used.

Outdoor sports in developed countries are developing rapidly, driving portable lighting

The developed economies of Europe and the United States, coupled with a good natural environment and people's yearning for a healthy lifestyle, have a broad mass base for outdoor sports, providing a fundamental impetus for the development of the outdoor products industry.

According to the research report "The Active Outdoor Recreation Economy" released by OIF, the annual retail sales of outdoor sports products in the United States reached US$46 billion in 2006. According to the data of "Mountain" magazine, the average growth rate of the European outdoor products industry from 2001 to 2006 was 7%, which was faster than the overall economic growth rate in Europe during the same period. With the widespread spread of outdoor lifestyles, the consumption habits of outdoor products have gradually changed. The outdoor products have many characteristics such as many styles, excellent quality and performance, and fashionable appearance, which are more and more recognized and loved by consumers. Therefore, people also choose outdoor products in their daily lives. As a part of outdoor products, portable luminaires show a strong momentum of rapid development in the sunrise industry.

At present, with the global transfer of production bases, China has become an internationally important production base for portable lighting products. In 2010, the output value of China's portable lighting products reached US$2.01 billion and exports exceeded US$800 million. The table below shows the trends in the output value of portable lighting products in China.

As can be seen from the above table, since 2007, China's portable lighting industry has maintained a stable development trend, and the total output value has steadily increased. After 2011, with the acceleration of the global economic recovery, people's concept has been further emphasized, whether it is daily use, The reserve should be emergency or personal outdoor sports. The market for portable lighting products will be further expanded. By 2015, the total output value of portable lighting products in China is expected to reach 3.232 billion US dollars.

It is worth noting that with the phasing out of traditional light source products, the price of LED new light source products is reduced, and the proportion of portable lighting products using LED light source to the overall product will be significantly improved, becoming a new hot spot in the development of the industry.
