This review is performed mainly to study and summarize the research scenario on carbon nanotube aluminium matrix nano-composite (CNT-AMC) prepared by powder metallurgy route for a wide variety of applications such as aerospace, automobile and sport equipment industries. Many research have been carried out in utilizing CNTs as reinforcement for nano-composite material development on aluminium matrix. The challenge is to distribute CNT uniformly in the matrix to enhance the mechanical and wear properties in the service life of the material. The result showed that powder metallurgy is the simpler and cheaper way of making aluminiumnano-composite with uniform dispersion of CNTs and improved mechanical, wear and frictional properties. This paper summarized the research on carbon nanotube aluminiumnano-composite prepared using powder metallurgy route and clearly stated the importance and benefits of CNT-Al nano-composite on other materials.
