Abstract: Natural fibres and their products were prevalent since the early civilization of our society. Since then, the utilization and economic impact of natural fibre cultivation and down stream processing and products have been well established all over the world. This is attributed to the fact that every part of the fibre crops provides opportunities both in up and down streams processing for developing conventional as well as new products for wide ranging applications in textiles, packaging, building, automotive, aerospace, marine, electronic, leisure and household uses. This paper will provide an overview of the current status of research and development. It will also deal with future drivers for the growth and competitiveness of natural fibres. The competitive pressure from the new class of biodegradable synthetic fibres produced from naturally renewable raw materials will also be discussed
