Why do many cheap Android tablets lack access to Google Play?

I was looking at a friend’s Archos tablet, and he didn’t have the app that takes you to Google Play, so he is stuck with Amazon for apps, or Archos’ sad excuse for an app store. I’ve seen a couple of other “off-brand” tablets that also lack it. Why is it missing from so many Android tablets?
