Under Armour has grown to become a $3bn business, generating significant profits in the process. However, the company does face a number of challenges. Its origins as a supplier of performance apparel continue to be seen, as the company exhibits an ongoing overreliance on apparel, a segment that accounts for almost 75% of revenue, while the vast majority of its business is in North America.

In order to achieve success as a performance apparel brand, Under Armour has focused almost exclusively on the sports industry. As part of this sport-focused strategy, the company has entered the world of mainstream sport by way of endorsement and exclusive outfitter deals covering a wide range of sports. Much of this is focused in North America.
The company has begun to branch out in to sports such as rugby and soccer as it looks to boost its brand appeal on a more global scale. Since its inception in 1996, Under Armour has gradually increased its product range as it looks to reduce its reliance on apparel. This strategy remains a central part of the company’s plans.
Under Armour's story is one of great success. It has undergone rapid growth and has developed its presence across a range of product lines and geographies.
