The State of the worldwide Islamic Economy Report 2020–2021 projects that by 2020, the worldwide halal industry would be worth roughly US$2.3 billion. This covers both the food and non-food industries including halal cosmetics, finance, and tourism. The same survey estimates that the global market for halal food was worth over USD 1.4 trillion in 2018.
This industry is anticipated to keep expanding as a result of factors such as the rising Muslim population, rising disposable incomes in Muslim nations, and increased non-Muslim consumer demand for halal products. Asia, particularly Indonesia, Malaysia, and Pakistan, has the largest halal food markets.
However, the demand for halal food is also expanding in other areas, such as Europe and North America, where the Muslim population is growing and non-Muslim consumers are interested in halal products due to worries about food safety and quality. In general, the halal industry is a sizable and rapidly expanding market with rising demand for halal products across a variety of sectors.

A further indication that a European halal quality label is imminent.
Building consumer confidence and standardising halal goods and services in Europe require a European halal quality badge. It offers transparency, makes it easier for European businesses to access the Islamic market, increases Muslim consumers' convenience in Europe, and supports the halal industry, all of which have a positive financial impact. Overall, it facilitates trade while meeting the requirements of Europe's expanding Muslim population.
