Npm have enterprise plans (private registries and other tools), but I'm not sure if they actually make a profit

NPM has not only enterprise plan also personal plans.

The fact they have paid plans does not mean they're making a profit. I've never worked at a company which pays for their products - the offering is not worthwhile since you can just use ssh packages.
