Due to the gradual transfer of global manufacturing capacity to China and high speed growth of China’s manufacturing industry, the correlated material industry has grown rapidly. Advanced ceramic material is one of the new materials developed in twentieth century. It has been widely used in national defense, aerospace, machinery, automobile, electronics, chemical, medical, construction and many other fields. Both the 12th Five-Year Plan for New Material Industry and the 12th Five-Year Plan for Building Material Industry have taken advanced ceramics as key development field.
Advanced manufacturing of powder metallurgy is a typical incremental manufacturing technology. The whole process embodies the characteristics of energy saving, environmental protection and resource saving. It is a revolution on traditional mechanical manufacturing technology. The global powder metallurgy market centers on North America, Europe, Japan and China. Through constant introduction of foreign advanced technology and independent development and innovation, China powder metallurgy industry and technology have shown a trend of rapid development in recent years, whose output is increasing at an average annual rate of 35%. The fast growth of automobile manufacturing, machinery and equipment, metal processing, aerospace, instrumentation, medical equipment, electronic appliance, and high-tech industry has brought exclusive development opportunities for the powder metallurgy industry.
