This review provides details of the global scenario on the recent development and application of NiTi smart metal shape memory alloys (SMA). It mainly focuses on the dc/rf magnetron sputtering fabrication technology of nitinol thin film, which is a prominent structural material for many miniaturised systems. The sputtering parameters and their influence on the smart mechanism of the NiTi thin film has highlighted. The application of NiTi SMA at industrial scale from aviation industries to medical industries was discussed. The raised challenges within various applications were addressed, discussed and we have proposed possible way to overcome these limitations.
