As with most things, the most popular rarely means it's the best.  I'm sure most people here would agree that none of the previously mentioned keyboard brands are all that great.  They just have good distribution and advertising.  There are plenty of threads about what keyboards actually are the best, though.

true, I had a cooler master tkl and I enjoyed it but have recently switched to a ducky mini and the ducky feels a little more solid then the CM did and the keycaps are nicer

  In terms of what's on most desktops I imagine it would have to be Dell (puke)

And Americans seem to love bulky design with useless plastic fins and bits with plenty of gaudy eye-bleeding RGB on every surface that has room for a pointless pulsing light.

Fixed it. This isn't a geographically-bound preference.

depending on the way you turn the question i would say Logitech worldwide although their mechs are maybe not the most popular, as a brand that makes mech i think they may be, them or Cherry, as both are used in offices everywhere mouse and keyboards.
if you were talking only for the mech part of the business i have no clues whatsoever, it very much depend on your definitions of popular and mechanical, in numbers of unit sold IBM/Lexmark/Unicomp may be quite high, in modern market shares maybe a razer or corsair

Ducky.

I wouldn't say they have near as strong of a foothold these days, but back in the day Ducky, WASD, and Vortex definitely were huge.
