Abstract

Titanium and its alloys are still very advantageous for aerospace applications in the world. Non-aerospace applications of titanium and its alloys are much emphasized comparing with aerospace applications in Japan. Recently, titanium and its alloys are getting much attention in medical applications and health care goods. Other new applications of titanium and its alloys are progressively growing. Topics of applications, research and development of titanium and its alloys in aerospace and non-aerospace including medical and health care goods, automobile parts, sport and leisure, consumer goods, architecture, marine and smelting fields are described in this paper.
