The global mechanical keyboard market is anticipated to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 13.53% from US$1,088.489 million in 2020 to US$2,645.646 million by 2027.

A mechanical keyboard is made with high-quality, spring-used key buttons. These key switches differ depending on the requirements or user-friendliness of the keyboard. The first widely available keyboards, such as IBM’s Model M in the 1980s, used mechanical switches; however, the 1990s saw a massive influx of low-cost rubber dome keyboards that inundated the keyboard market. Mechanical keyboards set a new precedent in every way. Compared to conventional rubber dome keyboards, mechanical keyboard switches, functionality, type print methods, key construction, PCB board, LED lighting, framing, and a slew of other features are superior. The majority of these enhancements ultimately come down to one factor: feel. Mechanical keyboards are merely more comfortable than rubber dome keyboards.
