Sukuk issuances continue to rise

Reading Time: 1 minute

The international Sukuk market is expected to top $895 billion this year, and $5 trillion by 2015.  This dramatic increase from only $137 billion in 1996 is due to governments and investors increased decisions to explore Sukuk as an alternative method of financing offering competitive returns but with considerably less risk than other bond investments.  Malaysia leads the Islamic banking world with about $134 billion in Sukuk, 65% of issuances this year.  The Gulf Coast countries account for 26% of the market.

Sukuk issuances will surely benefit from increased revenue and savings in both the Middle East and Asia. World Islamic Banking Conference in Singapore, the chairman of Bank Indonesia urged Sukuk to diversify into longer-term (over 10-year) tenor, since it accounts currently for only 20% of the market.  Sukuk growth in Indonesia alone was 9.3% this year.
