Islamic Finance - Overview

According to the definition by the Bank of Finance, “Islamic finance is a way to manage money that keeps within the moral principles of Islam.” Some of the most commonly used systems in Islamic finance are Mudarabah (profit-sharing and loss-bearing), Wadiah (safekeeping), Musharaka (joint venture), Murabahah (cost-plus), and Ijara (leasing). Islamic finance also prohibits certain practices under Sharia law including riba or usury (interest paid on all loans of money).

Saudi Arabia Islamic Finance Market Forecast and Trends

Growth Drivers

High Muslim Population Following Shariah Law

According to the Pew Research Center, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has more than 30 million citizens, among which 93% of them are Muslim, of which almost 90% of them are Sunni Muslims. The Muslim population in Saudi Arabia largely follows Sharia law. This acts as a major driving factor for the growth of Saudi Arabia Islamic finance law. The citizens focus towards carry out their business and financial activities in compliance with this Sharia law, which is fueling the overall market growth.

Favorable Government Initiatives And Regulations

In a report published in The National News, Ashraf Madani, a senior analyst at Moody’s Corporation, an American business, and financial services company, said that “A comprehensive set of Islamic finance regulations have spurred Saudi [Arabian] banks to issue Sukuk, Islamic products are now listed on the main market, and an Islamic mortgage refinancing business has been established”. These ‘Islamic finance regulations’ are significantly contributing to the growth of the overall market.

Restraints

Rigidity in Islamic Finance

Islamic finance works in compliance with Shariah law and therefore is rigid to a certain extent. For instance, there are limited to no efforts in the Islamic finance industry for the small traders and the lower-middle-income groups, their issues, and complications in dealing with inflation, late payments, the lack of hedging of currencies and rates, or sharia-compliant places to park short therm funds for liquidity. This acts as a major restraining factor for market growth.

Impact of COVID-19 on Saudi Arabia Islamic Finance Market

The Islamic finance market was negatively impacted by the unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic outbreak. The pandemic burdened the economic growth of Saudi Arabia. The demand for Sukuk registered a significant decline during this period, directly affecting the liquidity and stability of the Saudi Arabia Islamic finance market. However, the market is projected to gain traction in the post-lockdown period as the financial transactions surge amid the lockdown upliftment.
