Polymer composites reinforced with natural/bio fibers play a key part in developing environmentally friendly materials thanks to their demanding modulus, high strength and minimal carbon footprint. Cocos nucifera (coconut) is extensively grown for its fruits in tropical countries, but the shells and husks are generally discarded. Natural fibers are utilized to strengthen polymer composites, and these parts of the coconut palm might be a good supply of them. The present state of knowledge of properties on coir fiber and coir fiber–reinforced polymer composites is summarized in this chapter.
