This study deals with an analysis of the production of the two assaih species (Euterpe precatoria Martius & Euterpe Oleracea) occurring in the states of Amazonas and Pará, respectively. In subject to delineate the economic behavior of two açaí pulp producing species, estimates were made based on temporal observations of the secondary data of produced amounts, prices practiced and respect analyses of growth market. The study made it possible to understand the market dynamics of the açaí economic activity from both species of the genus Euterpe. Analyzing data on the quantities produced and several studies on management, production and commercialization, it was possible to trace the apparent profile of the market structure of açaí fruit, where it was verified the strategic importance of investing in plantations of Euterpe precatoria species, because this species besides having higher anthocyanin contents, has its fruit production in the off-season months of E. oleracea. The harvest in alternate periods, adjust the annual supply and, certainly, will contribute to reduce the variation in prices. Over this perspective, was can perceive the social, political, technological, cultural, market and environmental transformations that need to be implemented and taken into account so that this activity may be able to follow an expansion of its demand and in an environment of perfect competition, find its point of balance, within the formats of the economic sustainability.
