Market Scenario

Globally, the mechanical keyboard market is expected to gain immense popularity among the gaming industry. According to the study, over 1 billion of the world’s population indulges in personal computer (PC) based games, and the number is expected to increase very rapidly over the next few years. The PC-based games involve highly defined graphics by which the teenagers are increasingly attracted. The PC-based also involves external peripherals such as mechanical keyboards, mouse and many more. The mechanical keyboards are developed and designed differently with switches under each key. The switches are molded with hitting parts such as hard plastic, metal, and springs. Whenever, an individual presses a key, the attached plastic pushes the spring downwards the spring is attached to a metal that recognizes the pressed key into circuit and pass to the system

The dynamic change in technology has instilled growth in the demand for innovative solutions for gamers. Many keyboard manufacturers have recognized the need for developing unique keyboards with distinctive features. Azio Corporation, one of the manufacturers, specifically focused on providing innovative technological peripherals, has developed "luxury vintage keyboard." The luxury vintage keyboard has turned out to be a product differentiator. The design and development of luxury vintage keyboard is done with the help of natural materials which gave out genuine characteristic in terms of touch, weight, and elements.
