Metal Injection Molding (MIM) Powders Market Introduction
Metal Injection Molding (MIM) Powders sometimes also referred to as Powdered Injection Molding (PIM) refers to the powders used in an advanced metal forming technique of metal injection molding for the production of metal parts with high tolerance. The scope of metal injection molding (MIM) powders market growth is expected to be significantly high as it has the capabilities of replacing other conventional techniques such as machining and investment casting. In the metal injection molding (MIM) powders market, the particle size distribution of powder is a key characteristic as this is the key feature responsible for the surface quality of the end-product.
Therefore, manufacturers offer metal injection molding (MIM) powders in a range of particle size distribution that typically spans from 16 μm to 38 μm. Furthermore, the metal injection molding (MIM) powders market is segmented by the different types of material used for their products that range from stainless steel to alloys that can be high density, soft magnetic, and controlled expansion alloys among others.
Metal Injection Molding (MIM) Powders Market Dynamics
Metal Injection Molding (MIM) Powders Market Drivers
Various advantages offered by the metal injection molding (MIM) powders over others is expected to be one of the key driving factor for the growth of metal injection molding (MIM) powders market. For instance, it offers cost-effective manufacturing to the high volume complex parts manufactures. Also, the production time by the application of metal injection molding (MIM) powders is highly reduced when compared with investment casting. Furthermore, finishing operations required on the end-products are minimum. These advantages offered by the application of metal injection molding (MIM) powders in manufacturing is extensively attractive to the end-users and hence, the sales of metal injection molding (MIM) powders has increased which is expected to increase further due to higher end-use production.
