                                          On July 27, some media reported that the yield rate of small and medium-sized OLED panel products supplied by BOE to Apple was not as good as expected, and Apple added orders from Samsung and LG.

According to industry speculations, the BOE 6-generation flexible AMOLED production line is expected to supply at least 20 million flexible screens for Apple in 2021.

On July 17, 2021, some media reported that research institutes expect that most of the 172 million OLED screens Apple will purchase for the iPhone this year will be used in the iPhone 13, and it is expected that there will be 106 million OLED screens, accounting for This is 61.6% of Apple's purchases in 2021. However, the research institute did not give the specific number of OLED screens Apple will purchase from the three companies, nor did it disclose whether BOE’s OLED screens will be used in the iPhone 13.

According to the forecast of Zhiyan Consulting, the global OLED market will be 44.7 billion U.S. dollars in 2022, with a CAGR of 15% from 2020 to 2022.

BOE's performance forecast for the first half of 2021 shows that the company expects to return to the parent net profit in the first half of 2021. Billion to 12.7 billion yuan, an increase of 1001% to 1018% year-on-year.
