Many composite materials are increasingly being used in the technology of many fields of study. They find applications in Aerospace, Civil, Electrical, Marine, Medical fields, etc. In this current study, an overview of all these applications were gathered and then consign the study to an interesting application of composite materials in transportation industries where biocomposites are predominantly used as biomaterials. Biocomposite materials are machinable and require machining procedures in many of their applications, this was extensively highlighted in this study. Also some challenges that stem from their machining were mentioned.
