In this era, there has been a substantial growth market for latest-generation materials. Hybrid metal matrix composites (HMMCs) are still one of the emerging new materials having lightweight, incredibly good mechanical characteristics. To make hybrid MMCs, many different types of reinforcements (more than one) with various properties are added to the matrix material. These composites are commonly utilized in the manufacturing, aviation, and automobile industries. Aluminum Hybrid metal matrix composites (AlHMMCs) are a modern type of MMCS that contains Al as matrix material that can meet the current needs of specialized applications. These requirements can be met because of enhanced mechanical properties, convenient manufacturing, and the ability to reduce the fabrication cost. The efficiency of these materials primarily depends on the choice of the appropriate reinforcement material combination and reinforcement type. MMCs propensities are often calculated by the reinforcing content. Thus this study provides a brief overview of the hybrid metal matrix and aluminum-based hybrid composites. This article discusses the combinations of reinforcement materials Al203, SiC used in the manufacturing of hybrid AlMMCS. The result of the paper is that the use of reinforcement materials increased the overall efficiency of the composites produced and led to reducing overall expenses.
