New improvements are going on to investigate the new thoughts of various applications of composites. Composites produced using natural and synthetic fibers are utilized for numerous applications such as aviation, marine, sports, furniture and different applications. There are studies in progress to durable furniture and new geometrical auxiliary structures and additionally bikes, tricycles and auto bodies. In this the key trust zones are taking after for composite materials are short and long haul innovative work, creation and testing bolster, accessibility and evaluating of crude materials, labor preparing, specialized bolster administrations for materials and procedure determination, process streamlining and outline, product quality improvement. Keeping in this view a thorough review on the manufacturing techniques, material properties and progressive of natural fiber composite materials are studied in this paper.
