The Islamic population of the world has been neglected by marketers in a totally unwarranted way for far too long. Paul Temporal knows the subject and knows the consumers. This masterful book fills a huge gap in the understanding of this 'last frontier' of marketing.

Islamic Branding and Marketing is a courageous and well-documented attempt at unearthing the vast opportunities in the Muslim world that remain largely unrealized. The uniformity, coming as it does within a vast geographical and ethnic diversity, is quite unique. The Ummah—as Muslims refer to it—naturally pulled together not only by faith but by a whole set of ethical and behavioral conduct that touches every aspect of daily life. This book helps marketers to plan ahead on how to manage this "diverse homogeneity" that distinguish the Ummah and do so on a kind of scale that represents 25 percent of the world population.
Islamic Branding and Marketing: Creating A Global Islamic Business provides a complete guide to building brands in the largest consumer market in the world. The global Muslim market is now approximately 23 percent of the world's population, and is projected to grow by about 35 percent in the next 20 years. If current trends continue, there are expected to be 2.2 billion Muslims in 2030 that will make up 26.4 percent of the world's total projected population of 8.3 billion.
As companies currently compete for the markets of China and India, few have realized the global Muslim market represents potentially larger opportunities. Author Paul Temporal explains how to develop and manage brands and businesses for the fast-growing Muslim market through sophisticated strategies that will ensure sustainable value, and addresses issues such as:
- How is the global Muslim market structured?
- What opportunities are there in Islamic brand categories, including the digital world?
- What strategies should non-Muslim companies adopt in Muslim countries?
More than 30 case studies illustrate practical applications of the topics covered, including Brunei Halal Brand, Godiva Chocolatier, Johor Corporations, Nestle, Unilever, Fulla, Muxlim Inc, and more.
Whether you are in control of an established company, starting up a new one, or have responsibility for a brand within an Islamic country looking for growth, Islamic Branding and Marketing is an indispensable resource that will help build, improve and secure brand equity and value for your company.
