“Seizing The Opportunity, Nigeria’s Path to Dominating the Halal Industry”

Nigeria Halal Markets report 2023

Driven by one of the largest global Muslim populations, Nigeria has become the world’s eighth-largest domestic halal economy market. Domestic spending on halal economy products and services in Nigeria reached US$107 billion in 2022, and it is expected to grow at a CAGR of 10.7% to reach US$180 billion by 2027.

The Nigeria Halal Economy Report 2023 aims to inspire and empower government entities in Nigeria, industries, and investors to grow Nigeria’s presence in the global and regional halal economy. Simplifying trade regulations, enhancing production competitiveness, increasing consumer awareness, and fostering partnerships are some strategies that can help Nigeria develop and grow its halal economy. This report offers insights and recommendations to enable Nigeria to tap into the potential of its halal market and contribute to the growth of the global halal industry.

Overall, this report estimates Nigeria’s halal economic opportunity to further boost its GDP by US$1.6 billion annually (mid scenario) within the next four years through incremental exports, import substitution, and FDI opportunities. The report presents key sectors, markets, and overall strategic areas based on a National Halal Economy Strategy framework to expand trade and investment opportunities.

The Lucrative Opportunity Awaiting Nigeria: Leadership in Africa’s Halal Economy
Globally, Muslim consumer spending on food, clothing, media and recreation, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, and travel was worth US$2.3 trillion in 2022. Nigeria’s Muslim consumer spend totals US$107 billion, accounting for 4.7% of the global spend and 22.7% of Africa’s spend. Nigeria’s Islamic finance assets were estimated to be worth US$3.3 billion. This positions Nigeria as the second-largest halal market in Africa after Egypt.

In terms of trade, Nigeria is the 11th largest exporter of halal products to OIC within the African region. It exported a total of US$379 million in halal products (food, pharma, and cosmetics) to OIC countries.
