Course Overview

A breakdown of the company's TAM, SAM, and SOM in the marketing portion of their strategy is a common (and very important) component missing from most businesses that we've seen over the years. Let's begin by looking at some of these acronyms, shall we?

What Is This About?

Coming up with an estimate of how big or small the market is is often an important step in planning a business. It might seem counter-intuitive, but one of the first steps to successfully conquering space is knowing your enemy. There are many ways of market sizing, but you will learn which one the best businesses use in this course.

Startups often use the acronyms TAM, SAM, and SOM in their market analysis, but what do these acronyms mean and why are they useful? TAM, SAM, and SOM are acronyms that represent several market segments:

  • The overall market demand for a product or service is TAM (Total Available Market)
  • The section of the TAM addressed by your products and services that are within your geographical reach is known as the SAM (Serviceable Available Market).
  • The segment of SAM that you can capture is called SOM (Serviceable Obtainable Market).
