TASER International Beats on Q4 Earnings & Revenues

Zacks Equity Research

Scottsdale, AZ-based TASER International Inc. TASR is a developer and seller of conducted electrical weapons (CEWs) equipped for use in law enforcement, military and other defense markets across the world. Their electric devices are used by over 780,000 officials in the US alone.

But off late, TASER is entering the body camera arena with a new line of products for officers.

TASER already has an edge in this space because it has an existing relationship with precincts all around the US. It should be easy for them to lean on these relationships to introduce their body camera products.

However, TASER faces intense competition in this space from various other body-mounted video camera making companies. This could definitely pose a challenge for the company going forward.
