As Islam is the second largest religion in the world, the Halal product market is expected to grow from about 1.25 trillion U.S. dollars in 2016 to about 2.57 trillion dollars in 2024. The Halal food market has massive potential for growth, and in many countries one can find many forms of Halal produce from meats to cosmetics. Some growth opportunities for the global Halal market include branding Halal food as healthy, prepared and processed in accordance to Islamic Law.
As the global market for Halal foods continues to grow, there will be an increasing demand from countries that do not have the means to produce sufficient quantities of their own Halal food. The leading importers of Halal food in 2015 among OIC countries were Saudi Arabia, Malaysia, and United Arab Emirates, with one of the most popular imported foods being meat. Other emerging Muslim countries like Pakistan, Bangladesh, India, and Indonesia have large populations and adhere to Islamic traditions regarding diet. As many other nations emerge economically, the increased purchasing power of these Muslim majority countries would prove astronomical. This can also be said for the European markets. There is an ever-increasing demand for Halal certified products in Europe, especially in places like the UK, France, Germany etc., places with large Islamic communities. There are endless opportunities in the now emerging Halal product market.
The global Halal market has emerged as a progressive component in the global economy. With a Muslim and Non-Muslim consumer base increasing every year, the Halal industry is set to become a competitive force in the international business world.
The opportunity to provide for people not only from the Islamic world but also consumers of different backgrounds with healthier and religiously acceptable Halal products is a goal that we here at IS EG Halal take with the utmost sincerity!
Reasons for the Halal option
With the ever increasing population of Islamic countries and along with acceptance from non-Muslim consumers, more people are investing in the Halal option regardless of religious affiliation. Halal products are seen as the most desirable product for the Muslim community and a healthier more humane alternative for non-Muslim consumers. For example, meat is pepared in a way where the blood is drained from the body of the animal as to prevent blood from remaining in the meat which increases the probability of putrefaction, which taints the meat. Consumers of Halal meat consider it ‘more preferable’ in comparison to traditional methods of slaughter, citing that the meat is more tender and tastes better because it stays fresh longer due to the absence of blood, making it resistant to bacteria. Aside from the religious aspect of obtaining Halal products, more secular contributors are interested in the Halal guidelines regarding the preparation of said products.

What is Halal? “Halal” in Arabic means permissible or lawful. When it is applied to food or other goods it denotes specific regulations as to which types of food/drink Muslims can consume as well as how those items are prepared. Halal also involves a ritual process of animal slaughter and specific health standards as well as an absence of pork and blood byproducts. Halal meat includes beef, chicken, lamb, goat, and fish, among others. The process in procuring halal products especially when it comes to the slaughter of animals or poultry involves a swift cut through the jugular vein, windpipe, and carotid artery. Once completed, the blood is drained from the animal. This process ensures that the animal is slaughtered in a humane and hygienic way with the least amount of pain or ‘unnecessary stress’. Pigs as well as carnivores and omnivores are not halal.The slaughterman must be a Muslim. Before each animal is slaughtered with a sharp knife the slaughter man recites "Bismillah, Allahu Akbar" which means "With God's blessings, God is Great". The carcass then thoroughly bleeds out before it undergoes further processing.
