‘Switch’ statement is conditional statement used to perform different action based on different condition. I.e. switch statement is used to select one of many blocks of code to be executed.
The switch statement is a control statement that handles multiple selections by passing control to one of the case statements within its body.
The switch statement is similar to a series of IF statements on the same expression. In many occasions, you may want to compare the same variable (or expression) with many different values, and execute a different piece of code depending on which value it equals to. This is exactly what the switch statement is for.

$product_Name = "Mouse";
switch ( $product_Name )
case "Monitor" :
echo "This is monitor section";
case "Keyboard" :
echo "This is Keyboard section";
case "CPU" :

case "Mouse" :
echo "This is mouse section";
echo "All above block of code not executed this is default section";
