Why so many keyboards have blue lights?

I am wondering this...

Why so many keyboards have blue lights when the main color for gaming hardware is usually red?

I have a red themed PSU, motherboard, RAM and such.

But then, many mice and keyboards that are not RGB are usually blue, like roccat, Asus, Logitech...

Cheers!

Its normally the go-to theme for a computer (blue lights, black components). Which hasn't changed that much from the 2000's (blue lights/ black case, silverish decals).

I thought it could have something to do with blue having better visibility on keys and such.

So, would black and red hardware mix well with blue lights?

I went for a black and blue theme for my computer, but when I changed to my G710 keyboard(which only has white) I've decided that I kinda like the white better. Just kinda seems less bling bling gamery.
