Noiseless digital product sales surge as consumers seek silence
Noiseless digital products are growing in popularity as more people are expressing frustration over noises caused by home appliances.
Wemakeprice Inc, a South Korean open-market operator, says sales of silent IT and home appliances have increased over the last two years.
IT devices for the workplace were particularly popular. Noiseless keyboard sales have increased more than 16-fold (1588 per cent) over the past two years, while noiseless-mouse sales have more than doubled.
Silent electric fans and humidifiers have also seen dramatic sales increases. Still-air air conditioners, fans, and fanless laptops are also gaining popularity.
More people are looking for noiseless products to avoid disturbing others in group-working environments, Wemakeprice says.
