Bi-component fibers are fibers that in a single fiber consist of two distinct raw material components. It is made by simultaneously spinning two compositions in each capillary of the spinneret. Core-sheath (C/S), side-by-side (S/S), segmented-pie (orange) and islands in-the-sea (I/S) are the most common types of bico fibers. The growing demand for non-woven fabrics is one of the growth drivers of the global bi-component fiber industry. In addition, bico fibers are also used in the manufacture of bulky goods, microfiber fabrics, advanced textiles, etc. Various types of commercial bico fibers as well as bico fiber fabrics are manufactured by many companies around the world. However, different aspects of bico fibers, their suitability in various fields of application, and some commercially available bico fibers are briefly reviewed in this paper.
