The materials science and materials world are having a new paradigm, and many materials are now transforming to composite materials, replacing many metallic materials and ceramic materials. Metallic materials with well-known properties and well-known manufacturing techniques at an affordable price are still the first preference for the materials selection; however, in many applications, due to weight problems, corrosion, and fatigue issues, composites are becoming more and more important. The corrosion costs consume 3%–3.5% of the whole-world gross domestic product and contribute to many failures in the structural components [1]. Moreover, processing conditions for the composites and polymers are much more energy-efficient and more labor friendly compared to metallic materials. Ceramic materials with high-temperature performance and good strength are of great importance, but still, they lack the elasticity for many industrial applications.

In the materials’ area, the composites especially fiber-reinforced composites are becoming more desired specifically in the transportation industry where fuel consumption is of great importance, and reduced CO2 is another big issue. Composites are very critical for many automotive industries, aerospace, and marine applications. Carbon footprint and sustainability are the key factors in today’s world, and composites are the key materials for these problems. Especially in the last decade, the composite aerostructures have grown more than 100% with compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) of 11.1% [2].

As the world’s energy need is increasing, the composites are also very significant in the area of renewable energy sources like wind-turbine blades. Energy-storage tanks that can store natural gas, hydrogen, and many other critical gasses are of great importance for the composites. Restoring present pipelines with carbon composites has been also very critical for the gas-piping industry. A report in 2015 prepared by Global Wind Energy Council demonstrated the exponential growth of wind turbines [3]. It was reported that between the years of 2000 and 2015, there was 25-fold increase in the installed wind-turbine capacity [3].

Composites have been used in the construction industry since the foundation of steel reinforced concrete, but for certain areas, polymer composites with high flexibility of forming offer numerous advantages, especially in the area of reinforcing current buildings under the risk of earthquake attack.

Sporting goods such as golf, sailing boats, fishing roads, and new technology bikes are highly interesting engineering applications with very important new technological breakthroughs like the use of graphene in the bicycle frame being a superlight bicycle, which is very vital.
