The investigation of Thermal performance in nanofluids and hybrid nanofluids over a curved stretching infinite region strengthens its roots in engineering and industry. Therefore, the comparative thermal analysis in SiO2–H2O and (MoS2–SiO2)–H2O is conducted over curved stretching surface. The model is reduced in the dimensional version via similarity transformation and then treated numerically. The velocity and thermal behavior for both the fluids is decorated against the preeminent parameters. From the analysis, it is examined that the motion of under consideration fluids declines against Fr and λ. The thermal performance enhances for higher volumetric fraction and λ. Further, it is noticed that thermal performance prevailed in (MoS2–SiO2)–H2O throughout the analysis. Therefore, (MoS2–SiO2)–H2O is better for industrial and engineering uses where high heat transfer is required to accomplished different processes of production.
