For infants under 3 months of age, pyloric stenosis is a common cause of projectile vomiting.
Other causes may include severe gastroesophageal reflux and intestinal obstruction.

In brief: No
The term projectile vomiting has been most commonly associated with pyloric stenosis but it is only a descriptive phrase for forceful vomiting.
Many things can also cause forceful vomiting. It depends on age of patient, symptoms associated, fever, etc. Pyloric stenosis is typically in infants < 1 m old, 1st born males and is a progressive non bilious vomiting that leads to electrolyte imbalance.
