This chapter will provide an introduction to the importance of thermal properties of textiles related to physiological comfort, the emerging area of smart textiles, and the benefits of phase-change material (PCM), which would bring for the thermal management solution of textile and clothing system. The working principle of PCM will be described, and the types of PCMs will be reported in details. Fibers incorporated with PCMs and their thermal management properties will be discussed based on the state-of-the-art research studies. The applications of PCMs and the fibers incorporated with PCMs will also be reported.
