Metal Injection Molding (MIM) is a unique manufacturing technique to fabricate mass production of metal parts with complex designs and hard-to-machined material with a wide variety of materials. MIM technology was applied to fabricate an extensive scope of products from a relatively simple utilization such as consumer products, automotive, to advanced utilization or product such as medical, electronics, military, and aerospace applications. The type of growth product in a certain region depends on the type of main industry. MIM technology is also well known as green manufacturing technology since it is relatively less energy, emission, and waste in the manufacturing process than forging and machining. This technology constantly grows to answer more advanced requirements of the product. In this paper, the development of MIM technology is not only reviewed globally but also regionally, particularly in Indonesia. MIM technology has a great prospect for growth in Indonesia because of the availability of raw material resources and the growth of manufacturing industry capability. Further research and innovation are needed to optimize the potential use of local resources and to boost the competence of the manufacturing industry. This paper should complement the published review of the development of MIM technology, mainly the development and prospect of MIM technology in Indonesia.
