The expanding growth rate of the global Muslim population indicates a rise in halal product consumption. Numerous stakeholders, including academics and researchers, accord the halal market with a great deal of importance. Several scholars have conducted research on halal-related topics. However, these studies encompass a wide range of topics, including ICT potential in the halal sector, the halal supply chain, Islamic law, and other natural science-related halal studies. This article aims to determine and map research related to the development of halal industry research trends published by leading journals worldwide. A qualitative method approach was used with descriptive statistics literature study from 214 publications on the topic of Halal Industry and VOS viewer software to study information about journals, articles, authors, citations, keywords, and countries. According to the findings, the number of publications on the development of halal industry research increased dramatically. The greatest number of document types are journal articles, in accordance with the results. Malaysia participated the most in halal industry research, while several non-Muslim countries were also represented. The most prominent keyword topics were halal industry, halal, halal logistics, and halal food. This study also exposes gaps in halal research and provides suggestions for future studies.
