    Why The Global Sukuk Market Is Stalling In 2018

    Dubai, UAE, June 20, 2018:  The global sukuk market experienced a significant slow down in issuance in the first half of 2018, as we predicted in January. Total sukuk issuance dropped by 15.3% compared with the same period last year, reaching $44.2 billion compared with $52.2 billion first half of 2017. This drop was even more pronounced for foreign currency sukuk issuance a t45%. We believe thatt his is due to the absence of major issuances from the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries seen in 2017.
