Abstract: Over the past few years; composite materials have been the dominant among all emerging materials. The volume and number of applications of composite materials have grown steadily, penetrating and conquering new markets relentlessly. The mechanical properties of polymers are inadequate for many structural purposes. In particular their strength and stiffness are low compared to metals and ceramics. These difficulties can be overcome by reinforcing Natural treated fibers with polymers. Secondly the processing temperature and pressure to make the composite material which act predominantly in the mechanical properties of the composites for this reason polymer matrix composites developed rapidly and soon became popular for structural applications. While thinking about composites the main points to be considered are Cost effectiveness and Environmental friendliness. This paper mainly deals with how effectively composites can be made without compromising its properties compared to other conventional materials to cope up with the changing market strategy.
