The Muslim travel market is one of the most lucrative and one of the most rapidly growing market segments in the industry. It is also one of the world's highest spending tourist markets. Therefore it is vital that destinations, businesses and travel-related entities take the needs of this market segment into consideration when devising business models and plans.

Choosing an accommodation provider is one of the most crucial aspects of travel planning, for Muslim travellers in particular. There are several aspects that Muslim travellers need to check and verify before deciding on a hotel or resort - such as the availability of Halal food and prayer facilities. CrescentRating's proprietary hotel rating system helps make this decision making process simpler by rating hotels based on what they can offer Muslim guests.

An increasing number of new internet ventures are looking to focus on the global Muslim market in a wide range of areas including food, tourism, fashion and credit cards. By doing so, they hope to cater to growing number of Muslims who wish to ensure that more areas of their consumption are religiously permissible.
