This comparative study aims to analyze the most relevant literature regarding Binder Jetting Additive Manufacturing (BJAM) process. The paper starts with section one to briefly introduce the process. Section two of the paper presents an overview of the technology; the main advantages and shortcomings are also addressed. Then, the materials that are mostly employed in BJ are introduced. In section four, the most important design considerations that must be taken into account in this process are presented. Section five of the paper compares the BJ systems available nowadays. Some relevant examples of components and geometries that can be created with this technology are presented next with special emphasis on applications for high-tech industries. Then, the main challenges and limitations along with the prospects of the BJ process are discussed. Finally, the main conclusions extracted from the literature review conducted are listed.
