Environmental preservation has been a prominent concern for each country and numerous guidelines have been framed by International bodies. Due to obvious advantages use of polymer composites are increasing and automobile and aero industry are the biggest consumers. In the last few decades non degradable, hazardous fibers and matrices have been used in fabrication of composites for various applications. In recent time natural fiber such as Jute, Kemp, Cotton, Flax which are enormously found in nature are very much able to replace these hazardous fiber-based composites due to ecofriendly, biodegradable characteristics. They can also be used in hybrid composites with synthetic fibers to bring functionalities. This article is focused on some recent updates and findings in field of mechanical characterizations of natural fiber-based polymer composites.
