The Asia Pacific region has been ascendant in the 2010s experiencing average power demand growth of above 5% per year compared to fairly flat demand in developed markets. By 2011, Asia Pacific markets had already grown larger than the total of North American and European markets combined, and at around the same time China overtook the United States as the largest single market. Going forward, Asia Pacific will grow to over half of global power demand by the first year or two of the 2020s.
