Powder injection molding is an industrial production method for making alloy, metal, and ceramic products. Due to its benefits over other procedures, such as cleaner product output, this process is extensively employed.

Market Dynamic


Medical equipment demand has surged due to COVID-19, which has significantly enhanced market potential for powder injection molding.

The growing demand for complicated components that can be downsized and used as -performance materials for various end-user industries is one of the main reasons propelling the worldwide powder injection molding market. The need for powder injection molding to create medical micro-parts for different medical procedures and techniques has also increased due to the rising demand for medical equipment. Vascular therapy, intravenous therapy, improved medication administration, and invasive surgery require proper equipment using cutting-edge manufacturing techniques.


The price of raw materials in the market for powder injection molding is significantly higher than the cost of raw materials used in earlier conventional processes, such as cast metals and alloys. In comparison to earlier technologies, the process of building up a factory for this technology is also rather expensive.
