Going places: How much did Muslims spend on travel in 2018?

Muslims spend on travel was valued at $189 billion in 2018, and is forecast to grow to $274 billion by 2024, according to the State of the Global Islamic Economy 2019/20 report.

Muslim-friendly tourism is more widespread than ever before, with offerings ranging from beach resorts to family-oriented hotels, and from travel agencies to apps to book and rate a vacation. While segregated swimming pools and halal restaurants have enabled Muslimfriendly tourism to develop in many markets, digital solutions have been key to unlocking the wider potential.

The State of the Global Islamic Economy report has been published annually since 2013.

It is produced by growth strategy and research advisory firm DinarStandard, the parent company of Salaam Gateway.
