Powder based additive manufacturing (AM) technology of Ti and its alloys has received great attention in biomedical
applications owing to its advantages such as customized fabrication, potential to be cost-, time-, and resource-saving. The
performance of additive manufactured implants or scaffolds strongly depends on various kinds of AM technique and the
quality of Ti and its alloy powders. This paper has specifically covered the process of commonly used powder-based AM
technique and the powder production of Ti and its alloy. The selected techniques include laser-based powder bed fusion
of metals (PBF-LB/M), electron beam powder bed fusion of metals (PBF-EB/M), and directed energy deposition utilized
in the production of the biomaterials are discussed as well as the powder fed system of binder jetting. Moreover, titanium
based powder production methods such as gas atomization, plasma atomization, and plasma rotating electrode process are
also discussed.
