Commenting on the report, an analyst from MIR team said: “One trend in the market is replacement sales overshadowing new product sales. The computer accessories market is observing a shift in the purpose of purchasing PC peripherals by the customers. Customers are now purchasing PC peripherals mostly as replacements for their existing systems rather than purchasing peripherals for their initial use.”
According to the report, one driver in the market is growing popularity of e-sports. The landscape of the gaming market has changed drastically with the launch of e-sports leagues. More and more gamers are taking it up as a career option and, thus, buying gaming accessories has become mandatory for these games.
Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is diminishing demand for standalone devices. The vast influence of the Internet and IT networking which forms the very basis of the global IT market has led to a decline in the preference and sales of standalone accessories such as keyboards, mice, or hard drives. The lack of attention from corporate customers toward standalone accessories has also resulted in a drop in the sales of computer accessories.
