Commercialization of the developed technology is a prime factor for any nation and sector to retain its existence in this global economy. Day by day the technological advancement touching new high in various sectors like the automobile and aircraft industries but high design efficiency is achieved only when it is complemented by appropriate material. In the list newer addition is MMCs (Metal Matrix Composites) which are favorable because of their lower cost achieved by cheaper reinforcement, easy processing, and capabilities of mass production. In recent days, the importance of semi-solid casting has been well accepted among various processing routes for aluminum alloys despite many challenges in terms of process parameters like porosity, agglomeration, non-uniform reinforcement particle distribution, low wettability, and engulfment, and this is a main consideration for the present work. Semi-solid casting is considered to be one of the most important and effective manufacturing processes of aluminum alloy for viable mechanical and metallurgical properties in the current perspective of product requirement and competitiveness. A glimpse of the current status is presented, which shows the potential of the process which can be utilized by the industries for several benefits. In a nutshell, it can be found that process has the capability of alteration by the use of different scraps and also have flexibility according to the processing parameters like stirring, pouring temperature, type of reinforcements, etc.
