Lack of standards. Since self-cleaning technologies in windows are new features and no quality standards are there to assess their efficiency, a consumer’s decision will be reliant only on the manufacturer’s claims. High cost. Pilkington self-cleaning windows are 15–20 % more expensive than conventional glass, which can negatively influence the buyer’s purchasing decision. Market upset. Glass cleaning companies are an important component of the glass windows “value chain”. Thus, the introduction of self-cleaning windows will affect their businesses negatively.
