Geographic analysis reveals that Europe occupied the largest share in 2014. However, the growth of this region is expected to be lower than North America in the forecast period. The factors restraining the European market growth are saturation of the market thus rendering less scope for expansion of the market.
North America will account for the second largest market share in 2014.
