Bamboo is a functionally graded grass composite in nature with extraordinary mechanical properties. This paper performed a review of studies on bamboo inspired materials. It started with the bamboo microstructural properties and mechanical characterizations. Then, a summary of the bamboo fiber reinforced polymeric composites was presented by introducing the fabrication process and the primary features. Subsequently, the study of bamboo inspired functionally graded materials were reviewed based on different applications. Finally, the authors introduced a hybrid energy harvesting system using a bamboo wind turbine and solar panels as an extension of bamboo inspired studies, which could also be a sustainable solution for renewable energy harvesting and utilization in different areas.
