Composite materials are currently being used in applications for aerospace, leisure, construction, sport, packaging and automotive industries, especially for the last mentioned application.Yet, present day trends such as a rise in interest in environmentally-friendly materials and the advancement of nanotechnology has led to the emergence of nano- and biocomposites. These materials offer comparable mechanical properties to conventional composites, with biocomposites having the added benefit of being biodegradable. This paper explores the nano- and biocomposites, focussing additionally on structural applications and emerging trends of this growing market.
