This chapter discusses price pass-through, household expenditure, and industrial structure in Taiwan. Pass-through caused by global commodity prices has had substantial impacts on the Taiwanese economy and has resulted in shifts in household expenditure patterns and the industrial structure. Inner structural and distribution effects in Taiwan are analyzed. A fundamental analysis of Taiwan's price transmission channel is presented and empirical estimation is used to calculate the degree of price pass-through. The results are used to analyze the characteristics of the Taiwan economy and compare them with global trends. By adopting various scenarios, the demand side and the supply side are analyzed in order to consider the economic outlook for Taiwan to see how the global commodity price fluctuations impact both consumers and producers.

Keywords:   industrial structure, household expenditure, price pass-through, global commodity prices, Taiwan, global trends
