Engineers throughout the world including India and China have used FRP to solve their structural problems in an efficient and economical manner. In the field of civil engineering, most of the use of FRP is confined to repairing and strengthening of structures. FRPs offer an added advantage over conventional materials and methods of retrofitting. Like other materials, FRP also has its limitations. After presenting a brief review on these dimensions, this paper provides a thorough survey of the research, education and application field of FRP in civil engineering in India and China. The paper also indicates pitfalls in the field and furnishes suggestions for improvement.
