Abstract: A bending module and a folding display device are provided. The bending module is adapted to vary between a flattened state and a bent state. The bending module includes a flexible unit and a pair of supporting members. The flexible unit has a neutral layer, and the pair of supporting members are connected to the flexible unit. When the bending module varies between the flattened state and the bent state, the flexible unit is deformed, and the supporting members are each rotated via one corresponding center of rotation to be relatively close to or far from each other, wherein the centers of rotation are always maintained on the neutral layer of the flexible unit. By applying the bending module to the folding display device, the service life of the folding display device may be extended.
