Composites have been increasingly used in the aerospace industry as they decrease weight and increase fuel efficiency. In addition, the capability of aerospace composites to maintain a greater strength-to-weight ratio allows more efficient structural and aerodynamic designs. The governments in developed countries focus on the replacement of old aircraft with advanced and high-performance aircraft. Manufacturers are considering the use of composites to achieve fuel efficiency and performance in accordance with the norms given by regulatory authorities. The automotive industry is highly focusing on stringent regulations such as the Corporate Average Fuel Efficiency (CAFE) standards and the European Emission Standards (EES) by the US and European governments, respectively, for the vehicle manufacturers. In wind turbines, the amount of energy produced by a turbine depends on the area swept by the blades of the turbines. The larger the blade of turbines, the larger is the area covered by them, and higher is the energy production. The turbines with high energy production capacity require lightweight wind blades as heavier blades affect the production capacity due to its weight constraints. Hence, the manufacturers are focusing on the use of lightweight materials in wind turbine designing
