A young football captain from the University of Maryland noticed that his jersey tee shirts were completely soaked with wear after practices, but the compression shorts stayed dry and never got wet. This inspired the founder and the brand owner of Under armor, Kevin Plank, to make moisture-wicking synthetic fabric shirts. It keeps the athletes cool and dry, and they are also lightweight. It is similar to all the qualities of compression shorts. Plank created these breathable shirts in his grandma’s basement in Washington and then started traveling up and down the east coast and tried to sell them for general feedback.

Recent Updates

In October 2019, Kevin Plank announced that he would be stepping down by 2020, and the brand COO, Patrik Frisk, would succeed him to be the CEO in January 2020. In July 2020, the company received Wells Notices from the U.S securities and exchange commission. The notices result from companies accounting revelations from 2015 to 2016 and the “pull-forward” sales for the same period. In the same month, the company reported a revenue decline of 41% in 2020, or $707.6 million, to their total income. In addition, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Under Armour had to close its stores and showrooms earlier that same year. Despite all the revenue and decline in sales, it still reached better analytic predictions, which had previously estimated profits of $541 million in sales for Q2. 

Conclusion

After reviewing all the categories from the women’s section, we can see that the companies are doing extremely well in the sportswear industry. Under Armour is one of the more established brands with a worldwide customer base. It has more market share than any other competitive brand, leading to more customers and, in the end, more profits. Under Armour started to expand globally so that in the future, they might catch up with all the big brands that are ruling now.

Even so, it is an extremely tough task to reach such a position. Under Armour has a very bright future if it keeps going on the path they follow. They make very innovative products that are very attractive and capture the eyes of the consumers. However, Under Armour needs to keep trying to expand globally and expand its showroom. In addition, they need to continue expanding their target market to include more products for women. If Under Armour can accomplish these two goals, the competition in the athletic shoe industry will greatly intensify, and the brand can reach the global top. Although Under Armour Representatives are holding conferences and releasing future advertising through television, not much has been announced about the company’s products. If you still haven’t tried this brand, try once to see how the Washington boy became the brand owner of one of the world’s largest selling sportswear, Under Armour.
