New Powder Metallurgy Industry Roadmap Released!

The Metal Powder Industries Federation (MPIF) has announced
the release of the 2023 PM Industry Roadmap. The update
reviews current and future demands of key markets and
identifies the technical barriers, challenges, opportunities, and
priorities that will drive the powder metallurgy (PM) industry's
continued growth. The current PM industry is driven by
applications in the automotive market. Growth opportunities for
PM technology over the next 10 years include energy,
aerospace, medical/dental, electrical and magnetic, defense,
and industrial and consumer products.
Key technology developments and example applications are
identified for each of the four main categories of PM processes:
press & sinter; metal injection molding (MIM); metal additive
manufacturing (AM); and isostatic pressing. This update also reviews the achievements
made by the PM industry from 2017-2022 and features interactive links to award-winning PM

The original 2001 PM² Industry Vision and Technology Roadmap, and subsequent updates
in 2012 and 2017, are still valid and relevant. They should continue to serve as a reference
for the PM industry’s long-term vision to be the preferred source of net-shaped metal-based
components. However, this 2023 update is expected to help guide the development of the
PM industry over the next several years.
