Abstract

An analysis of the powder injection molding (PIM) worldwide industry is underway. Data are being collected and analyzed and will cover technologies, markets, trends, applications, sales, properties, and profits. Data collection methods include industry surveys, conversations, database searches, and verification surveys and reports. Profiles on powder and feedstock suppliers, equipment manufacturers, parts makers and major users have been included. Relevant patents have been collected and abstracts will be given as well as literature that has been published in the field. The field is defined as both ceramic and metal systems and even includes some new combinatorial material systems only possible by a powder approach (including cemented carbides). The analysis has been broken down geographically to North America, Europe and Eastern Asia with data presented worldwide. PIM can be defined as an advanced manufacturing technology and is aligned with the evolution of advanced materials, formed to net-shapes and used in a wide variety of industrial and consumer product applications. The industry as a whole is strong and continues to grow at a surprisingly strong 40% annual rate. Continually, companies are investigating the technology and implementing either their own manufacturing capability or making the decision to buy from or acquire existing manufacturers.
