The global powder injection molding components (PIM) market reached $2.0 billion in 2014 and should reach $3.1 billion in 2020, with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 7.6% over the next six years.

This report provides:

- An overview of the global market for ceramic and metal injection molding (MIM) technologies, covering both powder and liquid processes for the metal injection segment.
- Analyses of global market trends, with data from 2014 and projections of compound annual growth rates (CAGRs) through 2020.
- Reviews and analysis of the patents awarded in the CIM and MIM technologies, by technology, by year and by geography; discussion on trends.
- Detailed analysis of various supplier products and technologies supporting the MIM marketplace, by technology and by geography; includes comprehensive lists of suppliers by product.
- Detailed analysis of various application markets for MIM technologies, such as firearms, medical and dental and watch making; includes comprehensive lists of customers by industry.
- Descriptions of the diverse products that can be made via powder metal injection molding and thixo-molding technologies, and the different markets for parts, including automotive, aerospace, consumer products, industrial, medical, dental and the 3C industry; materials used in each.

Scope of the Report:

The report summarizes the global market trends in the MIM and CIM industry. Although the emphasis is mainly on the MIM market, coverage of the CIM market has been expanded from earlier reports. Industry basics of both MIM and CIM are provided in separate chapters, after the Executive Summary.

In addition, three separate chapters analyze the supply side, production side and end-user markets of the MIM and CIM industry. The supply side chapter covers powder manufacturers, feedstock manufacturers and equipment makers that support the MIM and CIM industry. Geographical details of metal powder suppliers are provided. Listings of application markets along with potential customers are provided for medical, dental, watches and firearms products, as well as by product detail where this is available.

Patents related to MIM and CIM are analyzed in the subsequent chapter. The final chapter provides in-depth profiles of nearly numerous companies, including the patents owned by each and company financials (where specific data is available).

Since the industry is highly technical in nature, the report has a strong focus on the technical details of the industry, and should provide numerous tips, guidance and data sets to companies already working in the MIM industry with one material or process that want to branch out into other materials and processes. Numerous examples of binder systems and feedstock formulations are provided.
