Where is this industry the most dominant?
Which serious problems still trouble the industry?

Key Highlights
Whilst sharia compliant financial services have existed ever since the beginning of Islam in some shape or form, it is only in the 1970s that they were increasingly centralized and adapted to better fit the modern economic system.
According to one study around 40% of Muslims rejected non-sharia loans, which is around 700 million people, a massive number.
Despite strong growth potential, serious problems persist in this industry. These range from banks and financial institutions often finding themselves unable to reach large proportions of their customer base, to a general lack of scholarly consensus with regards to what qualifies as sharia compliant finance.
