With the continuing globalisation of the world sugar economy the importance of domestic market sugar prices is growing. In contrast to well-monitored world market prices, information on domestic prices is patchy and sometimes difficult to obtain.

The present survey provides an update on a long-term series of annual averages for domestic prices for the period from 2005 to 2014. Our records of retail prices cover countries representing about 84% of world consumption, while the database for wholesale prices includes records on countries representing on average about 79% of world sugar consumption.

Apart from being a reference paper on domestic prices at both the retail and wholesale levels, the paper also investigates links between world and domestic prices in a large number of countries including both exporters and importers of sugar, beet and cane sugar producers, focusing on the level of correlation between prices of the world and internal markets.
