About Walkie Talkie
A walkie talkie, also called a handheld transceiver (HT), may be described as a portable and handheld two-way radio transceiver. A walkie talkie works on simplex communication and uses inbuilt transmitters to send and receive radio signals to communicate and hence does not require a separate network tower. Walkie talkies are commonly used in settings where portable radio communications are necessary such as public safety, business, outdoor recreation, and military. Devices are available at various price points, ranging from inexpensive analog units sold as toys to ruggedized analog and digital units, which are waterproof or intrinsically safe, for use in boats or heavy industries.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global walkie talkie market to grow at a CAGR of 9.47% during the period 2017-2021.
