“Powder Metallurgy: A Global Market Review” to be published by Inovar Communications

February 8, 2012

The global Powder Metallurgy industry regained its growth momentum in 2010 and 2011 after the turbulence caused by the financial crisis of 2008 and the ensuing economic recession in 2009. Ferrous PM part production was set to break through the one million tonnes barrier in 2011 and the prospects for 2012 remain positive.

The latest edition of Powder Metallurgy: A Global Market Review, to be published by Inovar Communications Ltd, presents some of the key statistics in regional and global shipments relating to ferrous and non-ferrous PM products, hardmetals (cemented carbides), diamond tools, PM semi-products and powder-based magnets.

Two inset features review PM’s special relationship with the automotive industry and the continuing rapid growth of powder injection moulding (PIM).

Powder Metallurgy: A Global Market Review is included in the 15th Edition International Powder Metallurgy Directory, to be published in late March 2012, but will also be available to purchase as a separate download from www.ipmd.net from April 2012.

Fully updated from the previous edition, the 12,500+ word review includes data on both part and powder production and features more than 50 charts and tables.

The review has been compiled by Bernard Williams, former Executive Director of the European Powder Metallurgy Association (EPMA) and a Consulting Editor of Powder Injection Moulding International and the leading PM industry news source, www.ipmd.net.
