Japan, the United States, and Europe are all sharply decreasing.
The production of powder metallurgy products in Japan has been greatly reduced due to the sharp decline in the automotive industry since October last year. Regarding the situation in Europe and the United States, since there is no statistics on the amount of product produced, only the production conditions of raw material powders in Japan, Europe, and North America from 2007 to 2008 are compared.
Figure 1 shows the production of iron powder for powder metallurgy, and Figure 2 shows the production of copper powder for powder metallurgy, which are all expressed in the production volume of 100-2007 from January to March. The data from North America and Europe comes from MPIF. , EPMA.

North America has declined since January-March 2007 and has fallen sharply since April-June 2007. The production volume in January-March 2007 was 98,242 tons, and it fell to 57,409 tons in October-December 2008. On the other hand, Europe has fallen sharply from July to September 2007. Production in January-March 2007 was 51,274 tons, and in October-December 2008 it fell to 28,148 tons. The production of copper powder also shows the same tendency.
From January to March 2007 to October-December 2008, production in North America fell from 4,458 tons to 3,269 tons, and production in Europe fell from 3,927 tons to 2,334 tons. Production fell from 1,675 tons to 1,218 tons. I look forward to the early recovery.
