Why do Asian & African countries have so many writing systems compared to Europe?

Hey. I was curious about this. In Asia, for example, you have so many writing systems. Hangul, Hiragana, Katakana, Traditional & Simplified Hanzi, Thai Script, Brahmi, etc. – basically, it seems like every single country has a different writing system (and some more than one).

In Europe and America, on the other hand, we just use the Latin alphabet for the most part. And then some (few) countries use the Greek and the Cyrillic alphabet.

Why the difference in quantity?
