The Asia-Pacific region occupies an estimated 49.7% in 2017, and will likely grow to a market share of 53.1%, by 2022. The NAFTA region is the second-largest market, but its estimated market share of 25.5% is expected to recede slightly to 24.5% by 2022. The European market share is third in line with a market share of 19.7% in 2017, which will likely fall to 17.8% in 2022. The South American market is faring rather badly and will do so right up to 2022.
