from the past few decades the world depends upon the glass fiber reinforced composites. These composite materials used in so many areas like aerospace, automotive, construction and household purposes also due to their high mechanical properties. But for these composites there are some drawbacks like high cost, high density, high weight. In addition to this it have large impact on environment while preparing these fibers and their related composites. These drawbacks have been overcome by the natural fibers. The advantages of Natural fibers over synthetic fibers are low density, less weight, biodegradable in nature, less cost, recyclable, easily available and nontoxic in nature. Many researchers show interest towards natural fibres due to its advantages. Due to less cost and ecofriendly nature the natural fibers have capability to replace the synthetic fibres. This paper discusses about the mechanical properties of composites reinforced by natural fibers and factors which influences the mechanical properties of natural fibre reinforced composites.
