The increase in environmental problems due to pollution and non-biodegradable resources has lead to serious health hazards. This has lead to an increase in the demand for the natural composites. But the natural composites in their non-hybridized form normally exhibit lower mechanical properties. Therefore, natural fiber composites are mostly fabricated in hybridized form with other natural or synthetic fibers to enhance their mechanical, chemical & thermal properties& to make them suitable for engineering applications. This paper gives a review on the mechanical properties of coconut spathe fiber. Coconut spathe fiber is naturally available, low cost, less weight, eco-friendly, biodegradable and available in sheet form by nature. This natural fiber is so far not much investigated as their mechanical strength is quite low (1.15 MPa - 2.33 MPa) when used in non-hybridized form. But when it is used in hybridized form it exhibits a good strength & thereby reducing the cost of fabrication.
