Mobile Ad hoc Networks (MANETs) have created a considerable amount of attraction in wireless communication technology. It allows mobile nodes to communicate directly without centralized coordinator. MANET will be a future networks which can be used for various applications like video conferencing, military applications, rescue operations, gaming etc. For all these applications, data or file sharing play a vital role as it involves many users. To facilitate data sharing effectively in MANET, the technique used is Data Replication. But several challenges in MANETs complicate Data Replication. The aim of this paper is to discuss the various issues related to data replication in MANET and the possible solutions to solve these issues.
