The polymers are highly encouraged in engineering applications due to the properties of the excellent material with lightweight structural formations. The joining/welding of the polymeric materials is one of the most needful assembly operation techniques, structures formations, and repairs. The conventional joining techniques like; arc welding or gas welding are not fit for the welding of polymeric materials as they can burn the materials. There are some solid-state joining techniques available that have been largely reported in previous studies. Friction welding (rotary friction welding, linear friction welding, friction stir welding, friction spot welding, and friction stir spot welding), ultrasonic welding, laser welding, and resistance welding are some of the available welding techniques which are reported previously for innovative applications. The present study is a state of the art review of the solid-state welding techniques for the joining of polymeric materials. Also, this study highlights the direction of future studies for the welding of polymeric materials.
