Fibers are now very specialized to offer extremely high-performance properties for specific applications, such as fibers offering high strength, modulus and elasticity, flame-retardancy, electrical conductivity, moisture absorbency, cooling and heating effects, softness to touch. In this chapter, we review progresses in the commercialization and research of these specialty fibers.
