Cost - manufacturing and production costs will be too high, mostly taken up by the material and equipment cost rather than the cost of labour. The alternative will be to import and the average Asian family might not be able to afford a skylight and the governmets do not have daylighting grants or policies to assist with these issues.

Abdul, skylights (like horizontal windows) cannot be useful in hot climates unless shaded. Otherwise the space below will heat up too much.
