In recent years, the application of composite materials for high pressure technology has been on the rise. The use of composites allows reducing the weight, improving shape optimization, promoting ease of handling, and also increasing the vessel’s mechanical, impact, and corrosion behavior. This paper provides an overview of the research work conducted in recent years on application of composite materials in design and development of pressure vessels. The research work on composite materials, especially on structural health monitoring and self-healing would contribute to a continued growth of the applications of composite pressure vessels.
