FIG­URE 5: IS­LAMIC DIG­I­TAL SER­VICES GAPS & OP­POR­TU­NI­TIES

Thom­son Reuters iden­ti­fied 10 key op­por­tu­ni­ties as at­trac­tive for Mus­lims, based on the suc­cess of their main­stream coun­ter­parts, their ease of mon­e­ti­za­tion, and their Is­lamic rel­e­vance. More sig­nif­i­cantly, it found that 9 of th­ese op­por­tu­ni­ties were un­der­served by Dig­i­tal Is­lamic Ser­vices. The only ex­cep­tion was in Mus­lim e-commerce where de­spite the num­ber of suc­cess­ful e-tail­ers, the mar­ket re­mains at­trac­tive. Suc­cess­ful ex­am­ples in this ver­ti­cal in­cluded Zalora, Se­famerve, and Mo­danisa. Other highly at­trac­tive sec­tors in­cluded: Ha­lal “Shar­ing” plat­forms; So­cial Commerce plat­forms; Trans­port and Lo­gis­tic ser­vices; and Prod­uct Mar­ket­places across dif­fer­ent sec­tors.
