Use of Composites are increasing day by day because they offers advantages such as low weight, corrosion resistance, high fatigue strength, faster assembly, etc. MMCs posses significantly improved properties including high specific strength, specific modulus, damping capacity and good wear resistance compared to the unreinforced alloys. It is durable and highly efficient for automobile or aircraft. It exhibits higher competence for machining complex shapes with greater accuracy. Homogenous Continuous reinforcements can result in dramatic improvements in MMCs properties, consist of lightweight metal alloys, but cost remains high. Cost reduction can be achieved by cheaper reinforcements, simpler fabrication methods. It is possible to tailor their properties as per the requirement of various industrial applications by suitable combinations of matrix, reinforcement and fabrication method. This paper presents an up-to-date review of progress and benefits of different routes for fabrication and machining of composites.  The purpose of this review to provide a reliable scientific basis for the researchers planning to synthesize particulate reinforcement, Wettability, porosity MMC in the stir casting.
