Technological advancement has introduced wide range of functional keyboards suitable for both professional and personal applications. Among the various types of keyboards, mechanical keyboards gain an increase in traction in the consumer market. Mechanical keyboards are usually equipped with spring activated switches designed to suffice the users preferences.

Mechanical keyboards enhance typing experience by enabling accurate typing and longevity of the key life. Further, mechanical keyboards enable easy repair and replacement of switches, which adds on to its convenience and cost effectiveness.

The global mechanical keyboard market is mainly driven by its benefits over traditional membrane keyboards. Accurate typing, prolonged durability, instant response by the key switches, and enhanced functionality leverage the mechanical keyboards as compared to the membrane keyboards, thereby driving the demand for the global mechanical keyboard industry. The global mechanical keyboard market offers lucrative opportunities for the manufacturers owing to the rise in gaming population along with rapid rate of urbanization. There is an increase in trend for gaming applications, which require the implementation of advanced keyboard functionalities.

This scenario is expected to exhibit growth opportunities for the global mechanical keyboard market during the forecast period. However, the high cost of mechanical keyboard as compared to traditional keyboard hampers the market. Moreover, the volume of mechanical keyboards is much louder depending on the type of switch used and the typing pattern. Availability of low cost membrane keyboards, advanced alternatives such as joysticks, and multi functioning mouse are expected to restrain the growth of the global mechanical keyboard industry.
