The chiral charge density wave state which was recently discovered in TiSe2 can be understood as a combination of orbital and charge order. Here, we discuss the prerequisite material properties for this type of chiral charge order to emerge. We find that although both the lattice and orbital structure constrain the set of candidate materials, there remains a class of materials in which chiral charge order is expected to emerge.
