Key Factors Shaping the Mechanical Keyboard Market
Benefits Offered by Ergonomic Keyboard Layouts
Ergonomic keyboards facilitate comfortable positioning of hands, wrist, and forearm, while the curved key layout offers an easy approach to keys. Thus, such type of keyboard reduces stress while typing. These are generally switchable to Dvorak layout (the most commonly used signs are on the left, whereas the most frequently used consonants are on the right). This layout reduces the distance between the most-used keys, thus, ensuring around 50% less distance for the typist’s finger to move. Such factors are estimated to motivate individuals in adopting a mechanical keyboard during the forecast period.
Presence of Omni-Channel Distribution Network
Leading players operating in the mechanical keyboard market offer their products through multiple distribution channels, to expand their global market footprints. This, in turn, ensures easier consumer access to products and drives the growth of the mechanical keyboard market. Besides, with the help of wholesalers and retailers, companies focus on e-Commerce platforms such as Amazon, eBay, Buy.com, CDW, Insight, Newegg.com, PC Mall, PC Connection, and TigerDirect to increase sales of their ergonomic keyboards globally.
Rising Adoption of Mechanical Keyboard with Key Switches
In mechanical keyboard, key switches are used and can be replaced without desoldering them. Instead, they can be removed by using a simple plastic tool, which makes it relatively easy to replace keycaps of the keyboard. This is better for anyone who wants to try out different types of switches without having to buy a completely new mechanical keyboard. The client can only purchase a new pack of switches.
Growth Opportunities in the Asia Pacific Region
Major manufacturers in the mechanical keyboard market focus on expanding their business across Asia Pacific countries like India and China. Increasing investments by governments of these countries in digitalization infrastructure have led different manufacturers to expand their businesses in these countries.
