Trigger Price

A price at which an import causes the importing country automatically to impose a tariff or quota. For example, a country may have a law stating that if an import falls below $10 per unit, a tariff is imposed that results in the import becoming $13 per unit. Trigger prices are used when the importing country generally wishes to promote free trade but does not want importers to undercut domestic industry.

The specific price of an imported item below which a quota or tariff will be put into effect. A trigger price is imposed to keep foreign competitors from undercutting prices charged by domestic companies in the domestic firm's home market.
