Gum arabic prices vary on the basis of several factors, including botanical source, geographical origin, grade and level of processing. Historically, prices for Acacia senegal gum are substantially higher than prices for Acacia seyal gum. However, relative prices between the two gums fluctuate according to prevailing supply and demand forces. Gum arabic prices also vary significantly from country to country, and even from region to region within a given country. For example, in the Sudan, the Kordofan region is well known for producing the highest quality gum arabic. In Senegal, the same is true of the Ferlo region. As a result, gums from these regions command higher prices than gums produced elsewhere within the respective countries. Moreover, crude gum arabic prices vary by grade. For instance, in the Sudan, HPS commands the highest prices, followed by CAS, cleaned gum, siftings and dust.
