Global Industry Trends

Every two years, the powder metallurgy (PM) industry gathers for a global PM and particulate materials conference. Due to the pandemic, WorldPM2020 was cancelled. Instead, a regional review of the PM industry in North America, Europe, and Asia will be presented in three separate videos.

Presentation videos have been created by the World Congress tripartite sponsoring organizations— Metal Powder Industries Federation, European Powder Metallurgy Association, and Asian Powder Metallurgy Association. Collectively, the videos focus on industry business conditions, technology trends, and markets for PM and particulate materials.
