DescriptionIndia, endowed with an abundant availability of natural fibres such as jute, coir, sisal, pineapple, ramie, bamboo, banana etc., has focussed on the development of natural fibre composites primarily to explore value-added application avenues. Such natural fibre composites are well suited as wood substitutes in the housing & construction sector. The development of natural fibre composites in India is based on a two-pronged strategy of preventing depletion of forest resources as well as ensuring good economic returns for the cultivation of natural fibres.
