The AMCC event, in its third year, promotes dialog and raises awareness of this multicultural niche market where many mainstream companies are now seeing a growing opportunity.

“We are proud to release this grass-root American Muslim market business environment study exclusively at the AMCC event.  AMCC has become the go-to event to network, understand and navigate the niche American Muslim market,” said Rafi-uddin Shikoh, CEO/Managing Director of

The study will be looking at the varying Muslim demographic and market dynamic profiles of these ten states.  New Jersey is identified as having the largest Muslim segment among the top 10 States as a percentage of the total state population, at 1.4 %.  The study will also look at the largest group of Muslims in a State, i.e. California, with an estimated 17.3 % of the total Muslim population in America.  Other states being highlighted include New York, where about 14.9 % of American Muslims make up 1.2 % of total population and Illinois where about 8.4 % of American Muslims make up 1 % of the total population.

Besides the landscape of key players serving this diverse and fragmented market, the study will also show consumer perception of key brands on US ‘Halal’ (allowable for Muslims) food, finance, and select other sectors.
