  • This article addresses the development of high-entropy alloys (HEAs) fabricated via Powder Metallurgy (PM) techniques. There are potential opportunities for PM techniques to produce 'different' HEAs and offer alternative routes to obtain special compositions. The potential for PM is vast, and the obtained properties are highly competitive with those from HEAs produced by ingot casting. Considerable work must still be done to provide the market with reasons to use PM instead of other processing routes. Since article [Torralba JM, Alvaredo P, GarcĂ­a-Junceda A. High-entropy alloys fabricated via powder metallurgy. A critical review. Powder Metall. 2019;62(2), doi:10.1080/00325899.2019.1584454] was published in 2019, more than 100 research works have been issued on this topic. The objective of this paper is to provide an update on some of the new opportunities that have been proposed in the last months.
