Asia-Pacific accounted for the majority of revenue in 2014 and is expected to maintain its dominance throughout the forecast period. This is attributed to the increased installation capacity, increased government initiatives, and increase in population that in turn increases the electricity demand. Moreover, improvement in renewable energy expenditure further boosts the installation of residential solar PV in Asian countries, particularly in China, Japan, and India.

However, Asia-Pacific is projected to be the fastest growing region throughout the analysis period, where major demand is from China, being dominant in the region especially in utility sector power plant PV installation. This is a result of government incentives and tariffs on free grid connectivity for small and medium-size distributed PV solar power producers. Moreover, improvement in solar plant installation capacity and increase in expenditures in the emerging markets (such as India and Japan) to satisfy the unpredictable electricity needs in these countries have bolstered the market growth. Technological advancements for cost-effective PV technologies in these nations offer a lucrative opportunity for the crystalline silicon photovoltaic (pv) market growth.
