Halal Management



  • The Muslim population is the second-largest worldwide and is expected to grow by about 35 percent over the next 20 years, rising from 1.8 billion in 2012 to 2.2 billion by 2030, or 26.4 percent of the world’s total projected population of 8.3 billion. In tandem with this population growth is the increasing claim of a bigger share of the world’s consumer spending. Excluding Islamic finance and banking market, the global Halal market is valued at about US$2.77 trillion and is one of the fastest-growing global consumer markets. The worldwide Halal food market alone is worth an estimated US$650 billion or more and is close to 17 percent of the global food industry – presenting a major global opportunity. According to figures from United Nations and IMF, between 1990 and 2010, GDP per capita for Muslims worldwide has grown at the Cumulative Annual Growth Rate of 6.8% thereby, because it is largely young and part of an emerging middle class on the road to greater consumption, the Muslim market is particularly attractive to a variety of companies. Undeniably, the growth of the Halal consumer market in all sectors is thriving and represents a significant potential for international companies.

  • While the market has many facets and niche segments, understanding the umbrella term “Halal” is fundamental to approaching this market. The largest opportunity within the Halal market is undoubtedly food, but it is also where the greatest challenge lies.
