Quality and service standards are region specific with lack of standardization standards at global level. While different countries have recognized agencies that have set standards for standardization of services, there does not exist a single agency that monitors standardization of services globally.
Apart from this, increasing labor cost and increasing practices of developing in-house services are bottlenecks to the growth of facilities management market. Facilities management service providers are facing challenges of increasing labor costs during the tenure of long-term service contracts. Consequently, organizations are opting for short-term contracts or single contract thereby impacting the growth of facilities management market.
Moreover, due to nonexistence of quality standards, several organizations are forming their own in-house services by hiring personnel to be exclusively engaged in support services.
