The unit price of the U.S. wine that Taiwan imported reached US$8.09 per liter in 2021. In 2021, Taiwan imported a record-high volume and value of wine, amounting to nearly 23 million liters and USD264 million.

Though the entire market by value plateaued for the first half of 2022, the United States maintained a steady growth at five percent.
