    I think that it will be easier to rank if you target European countries. In chrome there is an extension named Google global. So you have different site ranked as number one if you search in UK and USA for the same keyword. But Im not pretty sure to which country this EU is related.

    Ok I did a quick research and I can say it will be diffcult to rank. why - because there is not google.eu, you can rank more easily only where google has extensions. de, ie, au, in, etc.

    So I guess, the case will be same with .asia as well.

    .eu itself can be ranked as easily as with any other non-ccTLD, but if you're just aiming for one market, it's better to go with ccTLD. They get a bit more boost in SE's of that specific country.
