Fiber-reinforced composites are essentially axial particulates embedded in fitting matrices. The primary objective of fiber-reinforced composites it to obtain materials with high strength in conjunction with higher elastic modulus. The strength elevation is however affected with applied load transiting from matrix to fibers, interfacial bonding between fiber-matrix, their relative alignment and nature of fiber scheming the overall material behaviors. The alignment of fibers may however be continuous or random depending on the end applications. The choice of the fiber reinforcement and its fitting matrix also depends on application requirements. In recent years, the advent of composite technology has led to the development of different fiber reinforced composite systems via varying manufacturing methodologies to obtain advanced material behaviors. Herein, we present a comparative account on various kinds of synthetic fibers and their significance as potential reinforcements with special emphasis on carbon fibers.
