The carbon nanostructures, which exhibited great potential for various applications, have attracted tremendous attention from scientific and technological fields for more than two decades. It is anticipated that the potential applications of these advanced materials, thanks to the desired motivation received from innovation and sustainability, especially in automotive and aerospace applications, will have a major impact on future vehicles. Besides, functional carbon-based nanostructures have been widely exploited as filler materials over the past few years to enhance the efficiency of structural and nonstructural composites, which are utilized in the manufacture of automobiles and aircraft. In this chapter, exhaustive information about the recent applications of carbon nanostructures is presented under such titles covering the body, components, crucial systems, etc., in the automotive and aerospace industry by considering their potential future applications as well. Research trends and innovations in carbon-based nanomaterials utilized in the aforementioned fields with functionalities such as sensing, energy storage, protective coatings, and shielding are examined in terms of their present and future states.
