The increasing concern for ecological preservation has prompted the development of new and innovative green materials that produce minimal environmental pollution. In this context, natural polymers have gained significant attention in recent times. Sugarcane Bagasse fibre, in particular, has undergone several chemical modifications, which have greatly enhanced its potential for various fields of interest. The advantages of sugarcane bagasse fibres are numerous and noteworthy. These fibres are a valuable by-product with qualities such as abundance, biodegradability, flexibility during processing, minimal health hazards, relatively high tensile and flexural modulus, low density, affordability, and recyclability. The chemical modification is done either by introducing a certain functional group on its surface or by modifying the chemistry of bagasse. These chemical structural changes reported to improve the matrix adherence and improving the composites mechanical properties. This review provides information on the application of surface-modified sugarcane bagasse and their materials from packaging to fillers. Also, this review article aims to give a detailed overview of the research on the use of sugarcane bagasse in reinforced composites, as well as its advancements and applications.
