The strength–ductility trade-off is an eminent factor in deciding the mechanical performance of a material with regard to specific applications. The strength–ductility synergy is generally inadequate in as-synthesized high entropy alloys (HEAs); however, it can be tailored owing to its tunable microstructure and phase stability. Thermo-mechanical processing (TMP) allows the microstructure to be tailored to achieve desired strength–ductility combination. The additional attribute is evolution of texture, which also significantly influences the mechanical properties. This review presents a critical insight into the role of TMP to achieve superior strength–ductility symbiosis at room temperature in single-phase (FCC, BCC) and multiphase HEA. The role of overall processing strategy of HEAs encompassing rolling and subsequent annealing in relation to the evolution of microstructure and texture in have been discussed. Recently practiced severe plastic deformation processes have also shown promise in improving the strength–ductility combination. The relevance of these processes in the processing of HEAs has also been analysed. At the end, futuristic approaches have been elaborated to enable efficient as well as hassle-free process towards achieving the proficiency of strength–ductility in HEAs. © 2022, Indian Institute of Science.
