Despite promising nothing lesser than a podium finish, Kashyap started the year on a disappointing note, losing out to Derek Wong in the pre-quarters of 2015 Malaysia Open Grand Prix Gold. But it was a completely different story at the India Open Grand Prix Gold 2015 where Kashyap defeated compatriot Srikanth Kidambi 23–21, 23–21 in an intense final. But the real challenge of the tournament was from Viktor Axelsen in the semi-finals. Kashyap was made to sweat against the tall Danish player. It was a highly interesting match till the last game when Axelsen ran out of steam and surrendering 18–21, 22–20, 21–7 to Kashyap. Kashyap's woes continued in the Superseries events as he lost out in the first round of the 2015 All England Super Series Premier. In the home Superseries event too kashyap's failed to reach the quarterfinal's bowing out to Xue Song of China in straight games in the prequarters.

One of the biggest victories for Kashyap came in the 2014 India Super Series when he beat the Chinese world number 6 Wang Zhengming, 12–21 21–17 12–21. He extended Indian hopes till the Quarterfinals where he lost out to top seed Lee Chong Wei. The 2014 Commonwealth Games was a halt to a steady decline in form for Kashyap as he lost almost all the subsequent matches after his home tournament. But there was more disappointment waiting for Kashyap as he lost in the very first round of 2014 BWF World Championships to Dieter Domke. Even in Asian Games 2014 he was a huge disappointment as he lost in the second round. He was widely criticized for not showing good fighting spirit in his second round match against top seed Lee Chong Wei which was quite uncharacteristic of Kashyap.

En route to the Semifinals, he upset world number 3 Jan Ø. Jørgensen his second win against the Dane.

In the Pre-quarters he defeated Niluka Karunaratne of Sri Lanka by 21–16, 15–21, 21–14. In the Quarterfinals, it was disappointment as a dejected looking Kashyap was escorted out of the court after his loss to top seed Lee Chong Wei in straight sets.
