Today, technology is presented for various reasons and is considered as a candidate for investment. Firms have to obtain technology for growth, competitiveness, product and service presentation, daily activities, meeting organizational damage, environmental, legal and governmental conditions, and many other reasons. One of the areas of science and technology that has a significant impact on improving living standards and serving the citizens is the airline industry which has an important role in improving the standard of living with the development in commercial and public sectors. One of the most important characteristics of this emerging industry is the multiplicity of application of new technologies, including composite structures technology. Entry of composite structures into the aerospace industry is for meeting its exceptional and unique needs, and it can be said that the perfect position and continuation of aerospace industry development depends on the progress of composites and the relevant techniques. One of the most significant parameters in the design of aircraft construction is the light weight along with good stability against the stresses and forces imposed which leads to reduced fuel consumption and increased payload, and specifies the position of these products in the aerospace industry. Absorptive capacity is defined as the ability to identify, acquire and apply knowledge in the environment, and technology acquisition is often referred to processes, strategies and using opportunities that provide the possibility of achieving desired goals in a short time. In this study, the most important issues and challenges on facing the composites industry are discussed in various domains including: Supply of raw materials, technology and production capacity, final market and product trade, business environment and political content of the industry. Finally, the impact of absorptive capacity on technology acquisition in the field of technology of composite structures is studied.
