A fiber reinforced polymer composites are structural materials which is embedded is known as reinforcement or interface and embedded is known as matrix. Over the few decades, the fiber reinforced polymer composite materials replaced many of the conventional materials. This is only possible because of adequate advantages offered by fiber reinforced polymer composites over the conventional materials. This article present overview of mechanical properties of natural fiber reinforced polymer composites.
