The application of composite materials in construction is fairly recent in comparison with that of more traditional applications such as automotive, marine and aerospace. The long life span of composite materials is attractive to the construction industry due to the lower life cycle costs and reduced amount of maintenance costs. Recently the use of composite materials in bridge construction has increased owing to the numerous advantages in particular the high weather tolerance properties which make composite materials ideal for outdoor use. Whereas in the past pedestrian bridges corroded in the winter because of the de-icing salts, used however now a days the use of composite materials has brought an end to this and increased the life span of bridges.

Other current applications can be found in housing construction where composite materials are being used from front doors through to chimneys.
