JLR contribution rising: Selling more luxury cars means more revenue and profits. Cheap cars like Nano can give volume but the real money is made through selling cars to the rich. Jaguar Land Rover or JLR, the company's luxury car brands, account for two-third of the company's revenue and three-quarters of Tata Motors consolidated net profit.

Demand outlook strong: The outlook is bright going forward. Luxury car segment's immunity to a slowing economy would support JLR and lead Tata Motors's profits in 2012-13, says BRICS Securities, a securities firm.

Goldman Sachs, a global bank, believes that the top growing emerging markets now contribute a larger proportion of global luxury car sales.

The market share of emerging markets is 30 per cent in 2011-12 against an average 14 per cent between 2005-2008. which, in turn, improves the overall demand environment for JLR, the banks says.
