Trends in searches for certain products can reflect purchase habits, what’s being spoken about the most, and rises and falls in the popularity of certain gadgets. It appears that VR (virtual reality) has captured the public’s attention over the past year – topping the list of most searched-for types of accessories and making it into the top 10 of product-specific searches. It’s gaming headsets and gaming chairs that crop up the most across both categories, however.

With wired gaming headsets and mice topping the list of the best-selling gaming accessories of 2020, it’s apparent that the wired editions are more popular than wireless devices. This is likely because gamers feel the USB provides a more stable and responsive connection. On the other hand, wireless models can offer more freedom of movement without tangled wires in the way. PC gaming gadgets are also in higher demand than console accessories, potentially due to the more customisable nature of a PC gaming setup.
