The global mechanical keyboard market was valued at US$0.663 billion in 2016 and is projected to expand at a CAGR of 17.52% over the forecast period to reach US$1.748 billion by 2022. A mechanical keyboard is a keyboard which is developed with high quality, regularly spring actuated key switches. The key switches are in accordance of the keyboard’s application or user requirements. A mechanical keyboard utilizes real, physical switches underneath the keys to decide when the client has pushed a key.

A mechanical console's switches, confining, functionality, print techniques, key development, PCB board, LED lighting (sharpness, brightness, movability), and other components are far better than conventional keyboards. Such keyboards are durable as there is not a membrane inside the machine that takes a longer time than membrane keyboards to wear out.There is a typist advantage from the keys as well, when one writes, the letter is enlisted and it does not require a considerable measure to type.

Market Outlook

The global market for mechanical keyboard is largely driven by the continuous launch of new PC games in order to lure customers. Mechanical keyboard being superior to other keyboards in terms of durability and response time makes it a preferable choice for gaming. In addition, continuous investments in R&D resulting in the development of enhanced features like improved tactility and response time will continue to foster the demand for mechanical keyboards over the projected period. Factors like the introduction of light weight, easy availability, and enhanced feature in mechanical keyboard further drive the market growth. However, a high investment required to develop mechanical keyboard may restrain the market growth.

Geographical Outlook

Geographically, North America market is expected to drive the global market for mechanical keyboard over the forecasted period owing to increase in consumer inclination towards mechanical keyboards for gaming.
