The number of Muslims in 2010? 1.6 billion out of the nearly 7 billion people of the world!
If that wasn’t enough, Islam is poised to have the largest number of followers by 2075.
These factoids, along with the billions that Muslims are increasingly spending their disposable income on everything from halal food items to Islamic banking products, have made big businesses take notice. Even the biggest fashion designers and brands from the West are looking to cater to the next big commercial opportunity.
As major brands such as Nike and Dolce & Gabanna increasingly try (and even fail) in getting modest clothing apparels just right for Muslim customers, others are hoping to take advantage of this multi-billion opportunity.
