not gonna gain muscle... will make existing muscle stronger, but wont bulk up whatsoever. Muay Thai is all about conditioning, flexibility, etc.... not about bulkiness or strength.
A better martial art for those who are looking to bulk up, or better yet, for bulkier people to practice would be Russian Sambo or Judo or something more body weight related.

The amount of muscle you gain or lose is really dependent on your body type, genetics, workout routine etc. Some people develop lean muscle and tremendous vascularity in no time. Others may take much longer. A good muay Thai workout will burn through a lot, even muscle. That's why careful dieting and recovery is essential. Strength will come naturally as your body becomes accustomed to new routines and stresses.

You will get stronger, not nearly as much as you would weight lifting, but you'll also get flexibility, agility and quickness so it depends what you are looking for. It's definitely a work out.
