One of the most important metals in modern manufacturing, titanium is used extensively across the globe, in every industry imaginable.
Due to its durability and light weight, it can be found in many aerospace designs and equipment, high performance race cars, golf clubs, and medical equipment as well. Titanium is also highly resistant to corrosion and has the highest strength to density ratio of any metal.
