Electroforming technique has been employed to produce components, structures and articles that would be difficult or impossible to produce by other methods of fabrication with a high degree of surface finish and dimensional accuracy. Electroforming diffes from electroplating in that the electrodeposit is not a surface coating but actually forms the component. Electroforming is an expanding technology and hence used for a variety of applications. This paper reviews the status of electroforming technology particularly during the last decade preceding the last millennium. Recent developments in the applications of electroforming are discussed which includes moulds, electronic components, jewellery, aerospace applications and other industrial applications. Developments with respect to the alloy electroforming process, anode, electrolyte, pulse electroforming and new processes are also highlighted
