The market is expected to witness significant growth over the forecast period, attributing to increasing Muslim population across the globe coupled with rising consumption of halal food products worldwide. According to the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), meat products are considered as the most preferred diet of Muslims. Around 75% of the Muslim population in the U.S. and over 84% in France consume halal food daily, apart from the other dietary products. These are the factors that are expected to drive growth of global halal food market over the forecast period.

Lack of global regulatory body for certification of halal food products is to act as major factor hampering growth of the global halal food market. Some halal certification bodies include government-owned and -linked enterprises, independent Halal certification bodies (HCBs), private organizations, National Standard Agencies, regional bodies such as GCC Standardization Organization (GSO), The Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), and European Commission. While, international establishments including The Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) and The Standards and Metrology Institute for the Islamic Countries (SMIIC) also help certify halal products. However, in most Muslim-minority countries, the halal sector is not controlled by the government. Rather, the standards and certification are decided by Islamic organizations, mosques, and independent HCBs. As a food industry sub-sector, halal is still subject to the health and safety regulations of the country. However, governments generally do not handle any specific halal-related issues.
