TAM = Total Addressable Market is the total market for your product. So if everyone in the world could buy your product, equaling 100% of the market, regardless of the competition in the market.
SAM = Serviceable Available Market is the portion of the market that you can acquire based on a current business model you are adopting.
SOM = Serviceable Obtainable Market is the subset of your SAM that you will realistically get to use your product. This is effectively your target market that you will initially try to sell to.
Use a bottom-up approach when leveraging TAM, SAM, and SOM.
