opportunities in developing economies, however, is dealing with challenges simultaneously. With increase in per
capita income, developing economies are further expected to emerge as major markets for halal food in a decade.
As countries in the Asia-Pacific region are undergoing infrastructural development with better and advanced
connectivity, retail shops are witnessing transition in terms of storage facility and kind of inventory.
The halal food sector is expanding at a phenomenal rate globally. Several well-known food firms are making use of
this invaluable resource to promote more halal products and win over customers. These food firms have made it
simpler to choose halal food by offering processed food from many cuisines and by creating quick and readily
cooked food. Not only are their food products becoming available in supermarkets, hypermarkets, and many online
platforms, but they are also growing their distribution network. Advances in the halal food sector propels the start of
a potentially enormous market, driven by a sizable, rapidly expanding, and youthful Muslim populace in Muslimmajority
nations, who want goods and services consistent with their Islamic lifestyle. According to the study
conducted by Pew Research Centre, 60% of the global Muslim population is under thirty.
Moreover, countries across the globe are modifying their Islamic economic plansto suit market demands and further
increase consumer trust in halal products. For instance, the 207 million-strong Muslim nation of Indonesia enacted
the Halal Product Law in 2019, requiring all consumer goods and associated services to be halal-certified before
being imported or exchanged within the nation. The rule has several limitations, such as the acceptance of haram
goods like alcohol, pig or pork byproducts, blood, and meat that hasn't been killed in accordance with Islamic law.
