NEW YORK -- State-backed Chinese manufacturer BOE Technology Group is expected to outstrip South Korea's LG Display as the top maker of flat-panel displays this year, marking China's growing dominance in the field.

The Beijing-based and Shenzhen-listed supplier of television screens to companies including Sony, Samsung Electronics and Hisense will reach a 17.7% share in flat-panel-display production capacity to beat LG Display for the first time, market research provider IHS Markit said in a Tuesday report.
