There are a few reasons.

Gaming mouse are different between casual/business mouse. In comparison they will differ in battery optimizations, latency, Ergonomics.

In battery optimizations, a typical wireless mouse might last somewhere between 8 months or more on an AA battery, versus a gaming mouse that either lasts 2-20 days at high performance and RGB lighting. The G603 wireless gaming mouse actually includes both gaming and low performance battery modes that reflect a 500 hour gaming mode or 18 month low performance mode.

Latency and high DPI is the main focus of gaming mouse, you are paying for the latest greatest sensors that offer high performance and lowest latency to increase hardware reaction times, casual mouses do not put these into focus or mention these, only using more older and cheap sensors with features such as any surface.

Ergonomics is hugely preferential, so many gaming mouses offer different sizes, customizable weights, types of grip/palm style, button placement and macros. The outer shells are also designed for extended gaming sessions where you are most likely to sweat a lot too, so you'll see many mouses not have the shiny surface that casual mouses have. Ergo mouse ball is an example of a non gaming mouse, designed to reduce wrist pain but have no focus about high performance sensors, button macros, or matching RGB colours.

RGB colours also represent the ecosystem of your peripherals, where your keyboard, desktop case, mouse, and headset can be matching in moving colour patterns, etc.

Gaming mice can be seen as a sports car, great on a track, but not ideal to a civilian/casual driver. It has its uses to the target audience.
