China’s largest manufacturer of LCD screens is adding huge capacity to its production of flexible OLEDs—the sort that can be used in foldable phones, wearable tech, laptops, and even interactive dashboards in cars. BOE is building two new OLED factories, due to come online by 2020. Its earnings slipped in the second quarter, but LCD pricing appears to have bottomed out and income is expected to rebound. To guard against future troughs, BOE has begun diversifying into health care—leveraging its expertise in A.I., sensors, and screen tech.
