A brief analysis of studies in field of metal-matrix composite (MMC) materials production with use of pulsed-discharge technology (PDT) is performed in present paper. It is shown that high voltage electric discharge (HVED) in liquid allows obtaining homogeneous highly disperse blend of complex chemical composition. Consolidation of blend by method of spark-plasma sintering (SPS) ensures preservation of grain size, which allows achieving high strength characteristics of MMC.
