Prospect & Outlook
The outlook for Islamic economy remains bullish and spending is forecasted to grow to US$4.8 trillion by 2023 driven by the fastest growth and youngest Muslim populations, stronger investments and rising trade in Islamic products.
The Islamic economy has shown it is in tune with the latest developments in technology and investment. Companies have adopted blockchain technology for payments, to confirm halal compliance, or track food, cosmetics and pharmaceutical products from the manufacturing facility to the retailer. In Islamic finance, blockchain and automation is expanding access to financial services.
Technology Potential in the Islamic Economy
Blockchain promises to make halal compliance more traceable , and products more easily traded. Across halal products – the technology can quickly confirm halal compliance at each stage of the production, such application can eliminate fraud, and with support from regulators, can raise the market perception of halal relative to other certifications within the food industry.
Islamic finance can embrace technology thereby positioning itself at the forefront of ethical finance. Blockchain and automation can play a transformational role in making Islamic finance more accessible to a broader audience. Historically, Islamic finance required more onerous transaction structuring and verification processes, which has resulted in higher financing costs. Blockchain solves this by enabling the use of ‘smart contracts’ which can automatically enforce contractual terms, thereby substantially reducing costs.
Furthermore, the application of machine learning promises to automate back office processes, making Islamic finance institutions more profitable and competitive, with a broader set of digital features to enhance user experience, spanning the acceptance of crypto payments, as well as allowing contactless payments.
