According to the MasterCard-CrescentRating Ramadan Travel Report 2016, from 2016 to 2030, the positions of the non-OIC destinations will vary significantly due to the increase in attractiveness of OIC destinations for Muslim travelers during the month of Ramadan.
In 2016, only four non-OIC destinations appear in the top 20 rankings. With the rise of rankings of OIC countries from 2023 to 2030, there will only be two non-OIC destinations in the top 20 rankings from 2025 to 2030.
Overall, non-OIC destinations will remain largely less attractive for Muslim travelers in Ramadan from 2016 to 2030. The impact of this will be a decline in Muslim tourist arrivals into non-OIC countries, during Ramadan in the years 2023 to 2030.
