The most recent census by the Office of National Statistics found 3.9 million people in the UK identify as Muslim, meaning Ramadan and Eid are observed and celebrated by 6.7% of the population. Ramadan 2024 begins on 10 March and finishes on 9 April. Eid begins at sundown on 9 April and finishes the following day.
Based on 2023 data, Muslim creators appear to post less during Ramadan. However, content sharing positive messages about faith, routines and recipes as well as fashion and beauty posts for Eid helped audiences connect during this period
This reports features data-driven strategic advice for brands launching campaigns during this period and several data charts showing what engages consumers across different verticals and content formats.
