Key technology developments and example applications are identified for each of the four main categories of PM processes:

  • Press & sinter
  • Metal Injection Moulding
  • Metal Additive Manufacturing
  • Isostatic Pressing

Current industry is driven by applications in the automotive market, but growth opportunities over the next decade are expected in the energy, aerospace, medical, dental, electrical & magnetic, defence, industrial and consumer markets.

The 2023 update also reviews the industry achievements from 2017 – 2022 and features interactive links to award-winning Powder Metallurgy components. The original 2001 roadmap, and subsequent updates in 2012 and 2017, are still valid and relevant and may continue to serve as a reference.

The 2023 PM Industry Roadmap is available here.
