Taiwan is maybe a small market, the current population of Taiwan is about 23 millions, but with the purchasing power of a Taiwanese is similar to the purchasing power of a European.

Indeed, in terms of nominal GDP, Taiwan ranks close to Switzerland and Poland, while its GDP per capita expressed as purchasing power parity is similar to that of Sweden and Denmark and higher than that of Japan and South Korea.

Taiwan’s population is educated, with living standards and purchasing power comparable to those in Spain.

France is highly regarded here, with strong positive stereotypes; and French products related to gastronomy, fashion, wellness and beauty are particularly popular and prestigious.

In terms of usage, Taiwan is a highly tech-savvy country with over 98 percent of population owning smartphones as of 2019, the remote islands have the highest rate of smartphone ownership (equivalent to South Korea). Thus, e-commerce and buying online is very widespread in Taiwan.
