Natural fibres develop many options to substitute synthetic fibres in composite industry. However, due to the certain limitations of natural fibres such as moisture absorption, low density and strength, it has been reinforced along with synthetic fibres to transforms their limitations into advantages. Hybrid composites are reasonably high in strength, low in weight and environmental friendly. Moreover, kenaf/glass fibre/epoxy hybrid composites approached the quality perfor-mance and are hybrid composites approached the quality performance and are gaining huge attraction by many researchers. Present, article highlights the reported research focusing on kenaf fibre and glass fibre properties besides this also provide valuable insight on their epoxy-based hybrid composites as advanced materials for varied applications.
