In recent years, the powder metallurgy industry has developed rapidly, especially in the automotive industry, aviation and machinery manufacturing industries, which has brought great development opportunities for powder metallurgy.

From the perspective of the global powder metallurgy machinery parts industry, the automotive industry is the largest sales market for powder metallurgy parts. At the same time, this area is the most demanding for powder metallurgy part technology and quality. In Europe and other regions, the demand for powder metallurgy parts in the automotive industry accounts for about 90% of the entire powder metallurgy market. It can be seen from this that the role of powder metallurgy in the automotive industry is very huge.

However, at present, China's powder metallurgy products are still far behind the developed countries. Foreign countries began to develop powder forging connecting rods, combined sintered camshafts, etc., China is also involved in less, and the level of product research and development gap is large. Most domestic enterprises are still basically in the stage of drawing and processing, and their technological innovation ability is poor, and they are basically in the stage of imitation and innovation. There is an urgent need to improve the level of product development management and product quality.

The average use of powder metallurgy parts per car in Europe is 14KG, while the United States has reached an average of 20KG. In contrast, China's current average of 6KG per car powder metallurgy parts usage is very small. Is due to China's domestic powder metallurgy products can not meet the requirements of performance, so the automobile main engine factory can only choose higher cost of forging parts and machining parts. With the continuous progress of powder metallurgy manufacturing technology, it is believed that the average use of powder metallurgy parts in China will be higher and higher.

In recent years, the state has been paying close attention to environmental protection. With the introduction of national energy conservation, emission reduction and automobile safety and environmental protection policies and regulations, and the research and development of clean vehicles will become the key trend of future development, which brings new challenges to powder metallurgy products, but also brings great development opportunities.

At present, powder metallurgy has been recognized by the industry as a green and sustainable manufacturing technology. In general, powder metallurgy is made into finished parts after sintering, which can be packaged and delivered. In most cases, the cutting oil used in the processing of powder metallurgy products is negligible, and the toxic pollutants released by pollution sources such as cooling water are also very few. Compared with other manufacturing processes, the powder metallurgy parts industry has almost no harm to the environment.

Due to the cost and environmental advantages of powder metallurgy products, with the further growth of sales in China's automobile industry and the increase in the use of automobile powder metallurgy parts, the powder metallurgy market has a very good development prospect in the automotive field.
