The innovation in the usage of cheaper materials with better quality has been in the mind of many scientists. Recently, more requests have been on the utilization of agro-industrial product to produce materials to curb ecological hazards. Clay could be an alternative to SiC and Al2O3 due to their cheaper rate and availability. Reinforcements can be integrated into the melt using cheap and globally recognized stir casting method. Low - cost eco-friendly waste products that are easily accessible like clay, nanoclay, kaolinite, mica, and carbon are utilized as reinforcement in aluminium alloy. This review paper studied the various compositions of aluminium alloy composites for manufacturing purposes and its usage in automobile, aircraft, marine and the transportation industry. The study revealed that the addition of clay as reinforcement increases the properties of the composites.
