      Under Armour is attempting to make a push into international and emerging markets.
      The two main strengths for Under Armour are its core competence in innovation and its brand equity.
      UA is moving from niche to mainstream in an attempt to compete with Nike and Adidas on other product lines (footwear and accessories) other than performance apparel.
      Conclusions
    • Under Armour’s primary focus should be to increase their U.S. market share in other products such as footwear and accessories while maintaining market leadership in PA.
      Under Armour should move into international and emerging markets with caution to assure they do not expand too quickly.
      Under Armour needs to continue to provide value to consumers through innovation and research and development.
      Under Armour needs to integrate their marketing plan and make sure than all sponsorships and endorsements contribute to the value of the brand.
