Hypodermic is a non-intrusive header only IoC container for C++. It provides dependency injection to your existing design by managing the creation of your components and their dependencies in the right order, sparing you the trouble of writing and maintaining boiler plate code.
Used in production environments since 2012.
Configure the container by registering your components
ContainerBuilder builder; builder.registerType< MessageDispatcher >(); auto container = builder.build();
... then ask the container to give you an instance of that type
auto dispatcher = container->resolve< MessageDispatcher >();

Hypodermic was started with the will to mimic the famous .NET Autofac http://autofac.org/. Although its design evolved, both its behavior and its expressiveness tend to remain the same.
