The EPMA says that its surveys, covering a range of powder metal processes, are now open to participation.

“As always, the surveys will have a double value: to allow EPMA to supply back reliable data on 2021 production of powders and parts for the various applications, especially if we can reach a sufficient coverage of the European market; and to help the companies compare their view and experience to the average views of the competitors,” the PM organization said.

Company entry data will be treated as totally confidential with only aggregated and averaged data will be made available at the end. All results will be sent to participants, with some results shown to participating EPMA members during the virtual EPMA General Assembly, taking place on 28th April 2022. Results will be presented more widely during Sectoral Group meetings later in the year.

The deadline for all questionnaires is 11 March 2022.
