Computer keyboard is one of the primary input devices used with a computer that looks similar to those found on electric typewriters, but with some additional keys. Keyboards allow you to input letters, numbers, and other symbols into a computer that can serve as commands or be used to type text.
Ergonomic keyboards are designed to incorporate ergonomic considerations such as unique angled design, key sensitivity, and wrist support - allowing the wrists and hands to rest and move more naturally while operating keyboards. Despite the fact that ergonomic keyboards do not necessarily eliminate complex cases of repetitive stress injuries (RSIs) and carpal tunnel syndrome, they do however offer some degree of relief to people with moderate levels of such problems.
Rising demand for comfortable devices at workplaces is advancing the adoption of ergonomic keyboards, which have become quite popular among employees who perform significant amounts typing. Additionally, leading players operating in the industry are marketing products through multiple distribution channels to increase sales across the globe. This ensures wider and easier consumer access to ergonomic products and boosts market growth.
Ergonomic keyboards are being adopted at a brisk pace by several industries such as IT, oil & gas, energy, and communications. Rising awareness about RSIs and carpal tunnel syndrome is expected to encourage further adoption of ergonomic keyboards leading to substantial market growth during the forecast period.
The global computer keyboards market is classified on the basis of type as basic and ergonomic keyboards. Presently, the basic keyboards segment dominates the global computer keyboards market. However, with growing popularity of ergonomic keyboards, the basic segment is expected to lose significant market share during the forecast period.
