Speed & Efficiency matter:

A lot of people spend a good part of their life typing and if they type faster, work gets done sooner and they get more time to do stuff they love to do. Unless you find typing an immensely pleasurable task, improving typing speed must be a priority.The earlier you learn it, the longer you stand to benefit from it.

Experts say “Touch typing is one of the most useful skills a child can learn - at any age from seven upwards”

The question is best answered by another question and its answer!

Who doesn't need touch typing skills?

"Tarzan of the apes, his companion Cheetah the chimp and Mandrake the magician." An indisputable answer!

This answer gives a clue to the first question. A few explanations can help. 

Any literate person today gains from acquiring touch typing skills. Computer usage has become a must in all professions and occupations. The first and foremost computer skill that anyone must learn and learn first is touch typing skill. This is ideally learned before learning to use any other application on a computer. Learn touch typing before learning wordprocessing and spreadsheet.

What is the appropriate age for learning touch typing?
