ExcerptAlthough originally discovered in the 18th century , the titanium industry did not experience any significant advancement until the middle of the 20th century through the development of the gas turbine engine . Since then, the aerospace sector has dominated worldwide titanium use with applications in both engines and airframe structures . The highly desirable combination of properties, which include excellent corrosion resistance, favourable strength to weight ratios, and an impressive resistance to fatigue, has led to an extensive range of applications , with only high extraction and processing costs still restricting further implementation.
