Adaptation of alternative and novel materials in place of traditional metals and alloys is getting higher attention in all domains of life. Tailored or customized fiber reinforced composite materials offer multiple advantages such as lighter systems with adequate strength, cost-effectiveness, and easier handling during fabrication and service time. In this review paper, attempts are made to comprehensively look into property improvement, fabrication, and characterization followed by researchers for natural fiber reinforced, natural fiber-synthetic fiber reinforced and hybrid natural fibers reinforced polymer-based composites. Composites having natural fibers as reinforcements had improved sound absorption and vibration damping properties. A combination of natural and synthetic fiber was found to be ideal for obtaining improved mechanical properties.
