A major dynamic of the American Muslim market is the challenge and opportunity it presents in its vast geographic distribution. Mainstream national chains, retailers and brands that are not yet engaged with this population are well positioned to address the geographic challenge, given their existing national channels and networks. By DinarStandard’s estimation, fifteen states across the US represent approximately 85% of the total American Muslim population. These fifteen states run from coast to coast and are listed in descending order of their Muslim population size: Texas, New York, Illinois, California, Virginia, Florida, New Jersey, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Georgia,
Massachusetts, Maryland, Ohio, North Carolina, and Washington.
