The different types of metal powders andtheir consumption in different applications are of particular interest.REASONS FOR DOING THE STUDYPowder metallurgy (PM) has been a steady industry over the past several decades, growing fromthe 1980s. Much of its growth derived from metal powder-based parts used to replace castings,forgings and machined parts. The industry has consistently demonstrated that it could meet thedemand of manufacturers at a lower cost than other technologies.PM technology is still evolving, and the industry has adopted particulates (i.e., powders andmaterials not made solely of metals). Products are changing too, and PM can be adapted ormodified to meet their demands. BCC Research last examined this market in September 2010,
and thus considers this an appropriate time to analyze recent developments.SCOPE OF REPORTThis report analyzes the PM industry on a global basis, including manufacturing capability andconsumption by regional markets. It also examines industry standards, government and industrysupport, and other key factors related to the success of powder metallurgy.Market drivers within the industry are identified. The quantity and value of various powders andparts shipments is projected from 2011 to 2012, and then over a five-year period from 2012 to2017. Technological issues and trends are projected and other influential factors are discussed.The report identifies major manufacturers of powder metal and other related materials, such asceramics and nanopowders, special alloys and metal matrix composites. It also includescompanies that make parts and components for automotive products, industrial and tollingequipment, recreation and hobby items, appliances, business machines and other products.METHODOLOGYBoth primary and secondary research methodologies were used in the preparation of this study.BCC Research presents an analysis of the volume shipped in 2011 for each major segment of thePM industry. The estimated value of shipments is based on the price the manufacturers paid innon-depreciated U.S. dollars.Based on its analysis of PM properties, advantages, demand factors, competition and otherinformation, BCC projects the potential growth in volume of each segment and forecasts pricetrends for 2012 and 2017 as the basis for estimating the value of shipments for these same timeperiodsINFORMATION SOURCESBCC Research interviewed approximately 125 companies to obtain data for this study. Among thepersons interviewed were chemists, process equipment specialists, marketing executives,operations personnel and users of various powder metal parts. Participants includedrepresentatives of the automotive industry, tooling companies and industrial buyers. Additionaldata were obtained from government publications, trade associations, industry and financialsources, and an exhaustive review of technical literature.ANALYST’S CREDENTIALSThe author of the BCC report on which this updated edition is based is Robert H.
