Innovation From the Beginning 
In Armour, 1996 was founded by Kevin Plank, the footballer of Maryland. The basic concept created by Plank started as a simple shirt with state-of-the-art fabrics. The high tech material chosen by it has properties that can sweep the fabric and other moisture over the fabric to the surface rather than the absorption. He thought that if the athletes could be dry and the moisture draining ability could help regulate the temperature, they would perform better. That was his concept. The company launched $ 20,000 of its own money, $ 40,000 in credit, and $ 250,000 in small business loans.
Small Start – Consuming Uses for Success
1995. On November 18, Plank created the first prototype in my grandmother's basement in Washington, DC. His first sale took place at Georgia Tech University, where interest rates continued to grow. Shortly after giving more football teams and more than two dozen national football teams to performance clothing. The method of marketing and retaining clients was simple because he believed that if you created a product that he would best value, he would sell it. Plank continued to deliver this concept and achieved further success
In 1996, after its first success in 1996, Armor developed five product families, all of which came from the same microfiber. The main advantages of this tissue were as follows:
- Wick moisture away from skin, people in dry condition
- Reduce sweating and regulate body temperature due to breathability
- Light and comfortable
Recognizing that all these benefits have been applied to a number of consumers, it has created five product families that aim at a range of activities ranging from everyday life to extreme. It was a clever decision for Plank to broaden his marketing efforts because he was so successful that he moved to a larger facility in Southern Baltimore and instead placed Under Armor on the map.
Opportunities, 19659003] In 1998, Armour became the official supplier of performance clothing signed by the National Football League in Europe and in 1999 as a customer of Warner Bros. Dressed in armor dress, "Any Expected Sunday" and "Replacements" were released. It became apparent that Armor was not only tied to sports but all forms of activity.

A number of articles and case studies are best described with Time Magazines, which are among the fastest-growing private companies under Under Armor.

Creating Different Things
The question of many minds is how much direct competitors will grow? Kevin Plank started the same underestimation, still realistic, yet optimistic. The 546 Under Armor employee and Nike and Adidas have nearly 75% of the market share; are definitely on the right track. The future plan targets a wider approach to the female market.
Under Armour is expected to be between $ 200 and $ 250 million this year, so many business analysts are thinking about what's going to be the next big step. As a privately owned company, many people believe that Armor will be bought by a larger competitor. On the other hand, a company needs only $ 250 million to be public and attract the right investors, and they are almost there.
Under the Armor clothing, a company under the radar flew a success story in the textile industry for performance clothing. Each milestone and creative result demonstrate the true meaning of designing the consumer's needs. It is impossible to predict what the future is for an extraordinary company, but it is safe to say that what they have achieved is the place of the red carpet industry in the big players.
