Abstract: This review deals with a recent study of the literature on the various aspects of cellulosic fibres and biocomposites. Cellulosic fibre reinforced polymeric composites are finding applications in many fields ranging from construction industry to automotive industry. The pros and cons of using these fibres are enumerated in this review. The classification of composites into green composites, hybrid biocomposites and textile biocomposites are discussed. New developments dealing with cellulose based nanocomposites and electrospinning of nanofibres have also been presented. Recent studies pertaining to the above topics have also been cited. Finally, the applications of cellulosic fibre reinforced polymeric composites have been highlighted
