In 2018, the largest segment was the specimen retrieval device market, which accounted for the majority of the total market value. Growth of this market is primarily driven by the polyp retrieval trap segment, which is a low-cost alternative to specimen retrieval nets.

Abstract
Specimen retrieval devices are used for retrieving tissue samples or excised polyps in the gastrointestinal (GI) tract. They are most often used in conjunction with polypectomy snares. After a polyp has been excised by a snare, a specimen retrieval device is used to retrieve the specimen, which is then sent to a lab to be tested. Specimen retrieval devices are segmented into polyp retrieval traps, which are simple plastic devices that trap polyps into one or several chambers using suction, and specimen retrieval nets, which are similar to baskets. Foreign body removal devices are used to remove foreign objects that have been ingested or rectally inserted by an individual.
