This paper presents a detailed literature review on the current research of incremental sheet forming relating to deformation mechanism, modelling techniques, forming force prediction and process investigations. First, a review of the fundamental deformation mechanism and formability in incremental sheet forming (ISF) is provided. Subsequently, the modelling techniques for ISF are reviewed and categorised into two approaches: analytical modelling and finite element modelling. Special interest is given to a critical review regarding the forming forces analysis and prediction during the process. Then, previous publications related to geometric accuracy, surface finish and forming efficiency in ISF are reviewed. Finally, several potential hybrid incremental sheet-forming strategies are discussed. This leads to a statement of conclusion which may act as an inspiration and reference for the researcher.
