Tuesday’s Factors and Events
Five years ago, Axon Enterprise was called TASER International and was primarily making conducted electrical weapons, more commonly called stun guns, though it had just broken into the body camera and evidence database management market. Sales of Tasers represented over 92% of annual sales that year, though the body cam market held significant potential for growth.
Today, after changing its name to something that reflects where it sees the future of its business heading, Axon now generates almost a third of its top line from body cams and evidence management, and the segment which houses them, “software and sensors,” is the company’s fastest growing revenue stream. The segment’s sales rose 66% last year while Taser segment sales were up less than 16%.
