The aim of this review is to present the consolidated information about the contributions of various researchers on the application of EDM and WEDM on titanium materials and subsequently identify the research gaps. The literature survey has been carried out from three perspectives such as application of EDM and WEDM on titanium materials, utilization of tools and techniques for correlating experimental results and application of products produced by EDM and WEDM. Three main research areas has been identified. First, the application of EDM and WEDM on titanium materials mainly TiNi based alloys. Second, the utilization of advanced tools and techniques such as artificial neural network (ANN), advanced particle swarm optimization (PSO) and tabu enhanced genetic algorithm (GA). Third, the study and analysis of surface integrity in EDM and WEDM on titanium materials. In addition, the paper has also evolved the future research directions. The paper has been concluded by indicating the future research directions for the research gaps identified during this literature survey.
