Metal Injection Molding in Firearms and Defense Marke

According to a report by MarketsandMarkets, the global metal injection molding market size was USD 2.42 billion in 2020 and is expected to reach USD 3.99 billion by 2025, with an annual growth rate of 10.5% for the entire industry. Among them, firearms and defense account for nearly 30% of the MIM industry. With the development requirements of lightweight weapons, miniaturization, and low cost, the market size of MIM is also promoted to grow rapidly.

Research on the application of MIM technology in the military industry Modern war weapons and equipment are increasingly developing in the direction of integration of machinery, electricity, and optics, high performance, and low cost. Therefore, MIM technology integrates material modification and product manufacturing technology. Various military components provide a new and effective way.

Light weapons refer to firearms and various weapons carried by individual soldiers. The entire weapon system is required to be miniaturized, lightweight, and multifunctional, and its requirements for components are high dimensional accuracy.

Light weapons are an industry where various small and complex structural parts are relatively concentrated. Traditional processing methods are mostly manufactured by mechanical processing. The main problems are the long processing cycle, low production efficiency, low material utilization rate, and difficulty to guarantee the dimensional accuracy of products. The performance is not good, the appearance and feel are not ideal, and it is difficult to complete the processing of complex structural parts, which not only affects the production and cost of the enterprise to a large extent but also seriously restricts further improvement of the advanced performance of the light weapon system.

During the development of the MIM industry in the past 20 years, the MIM materials suitable for the weapon industry have become more and more stable, and the hardness and strength of the products can meet the production requirements of defense parts.

The special injection molding processing of MIM makes up for the defect that traditional processing methods are technically difficult to manufacture complex parts, so MM technology can give full play to its strengths and provide more processing methods for part design, and can fully guarantee the precision of complex parts to meet product requirement.

In the future, more firearms and defense manufacturers will choose MIM as the manufacturing process of their weapon parts.
