Composer is a dependency management tool for PHP that simplifies the process of managing libraries and packages in PHP projects. It allows developers to declare the dependencies their project needs and handles the installation and updating of those dependencies. The composer uses a centralized repository called Packagist, where thousands of open-source libraries and packages are available for easy integration into PHP projects. 


By defining dependencies in a composer.json file, developers can easily manage and track their project's dependencies, ensuring compatibility and easy maintenance. The composer has become an essential tool in the PHP ecosystem, enabling efficient dependency management and promoting code reusability.
