Global economic conditions effectively dictate the health of the global automotive industry. The industry saw severe stress for volumes and profits during the 2008 depression in India and around the world (Sturgeon & Van Biesebroeck, 2010).

Therefore, the stability of commodity prices plays a key role in the profitability of the company. Even though the company makes productivity and efficiency improvements to offset these fluctuating costs, the volatility has been too high for the company to mitigate in the past (Tata Motors, 2014). Among the many triggers to the loss of profitability is the fact that the small or medium commodity price fluctuations are not passed on to
