Sufentanil citrate shows very high potent compared to its other counterparts such as fentanyl. However, the sufentanil citrate demonstrates instantaneous action, with comparably limited body accumulation. This property of sufentanil citrate makes it highly important in anesthetic use for medical field. Accelerated removal of sufentanil citrate from body allows faster recovery of patients when compared to equipotent prescription of fentanyl. Approximately 80% of the administered dose is excreted within 24 hours and only 2% of the dose is eliminated as unchanged drug. Moreover, sufentanil citrate has low cardiovascular toxicity, making it apposite as total intravenous anesthetic for surgical procedures and finds particular utility for open heart surgery and other severe cardiovascular surgeries. However, sufentanil citrate demonstrates high potential for overdependence similar to morphine drug, therefore has the latent for being abused. Furthermore, when sufentanil citrate is administered in combination with volatile inhalational agents, it increases respiratory depression. Taking into account the probable threats associated with respiratory depression, necessary precaution and monitoring should be done for the patients.
Presently, the sufentanil citrate market is dominated by developed regions such as the U.S. and Europe majorly due to availability of advanced medical technologies. The increase in number of medical surgeries is expected to propel the growth of sufentanil citrate market. The augmentation in cardiovascular diseases and associated surgeries is expected to boost the requirement for sufentanil citrate in next few years. Also, the increase in gynecological surgeries is expected to increase the requirement of sufentanil citrate, thus increasing its market growth rate. Moreover, the faster removal of sufentanil citrate from body acts as a potential benefit for faster recovery of patients when compared with other drugs.

Asia Pacific countries such as China, India, Thailand, Indonesia and other developing countries in RoW are anticipated to be the upcoming market for sufentanil citrate. In spite of limited accumulation of sufentanil citrate in body, the drug demonstrates certain drawbacks such as respiratory depression. Moreover, the potential of sufentanil citrate to be used as abuse is expected to certainly affect the market of sufentanil citrate in developed regions, increasing the usage regulations on it. Gradual improvement in medicinal usage and additional safety regulations is expected to increase the demand for sufentanil citrate across developing regions.
The potential applications of sufentanil citrate in medical sector would create a lucrative option for several companies to penetrate in sufentanil citrate market. Some of the key players dominant in sufentanil citrate industry include Akorn, Inc and Mallinckrodt Pharmaceuticals.
