Halal Market to Reach $12.14 Trillion by 2024
Kentucky Ag Connection - 11/09/2018
The global halal market size was valued at $5.73 trillion in 2016 and is expected to grow on account of a rising Muslim population and increasing availability of these products and services. Increasing spending on Halal products and services by consumers who
are not necessarily Muslims is expected to trigger the growth of the market over the forecast period.
The Islamic finance sector has witnessed tremendous growth over the past few years with the emergence of crowd funding platforms including Human Crescent. Lack of awareness has resulted in an enormous opportunity for products and services offered by
this segment. The segment is likely to grow at a CAGR of 10.5% from 2017 to 2024.
Speedy growth of economies in the Middle East and South East Asia are expected to augment the growth of the market owing to the presence of large Muslim population. These economies are likely to emerge as popular destinations for food and fashion. The
Middle East halal market is expected to witness a double-digit growth generating revenues worth $6.53 trillion by 2024.
The demand for qualified halal products among non-Muslim customers has been on the upsurge as more consumers are looking for high superiority, safe and righteous products. Non-Muslim consumers in Asia Pacific are likely to play a vital role in driving the
regional market making it the second largest marketplace after the Middle East, contributing to 30.9% of the global revenues by 2024.
The Islamic economy is being driven primarily by the increasing youth population with high disposable incomes. These factors are likely to drive various segments of the halal market including fashion, food, finance, travel, and media & recreation. Moreover,
increasing availability of these products & services is expected to fuel the growth of the market over the projected period.
Keeping in mind the growth of the global halal industry, several food companies including KFC and Nestle are offering halal products to their Muslim consumers. The emergence of Islamic finance institutions offering finance and banking assets are expected to
provide further impetus to businesses that are focusing on venturing into the halal industry, thereby resulting in tremendous growth of the global halal industry over the next few years.
