Hi Shiv Shankar

 

For ex: if you want to display same table data or pageblock section for two or more times in a visualforce page or mulitiple pages you can use visualforce component. It will act like code resuability.

 

Another scenario is:

1) In visualforce email template if you want to use same email template for multi-language like English,Spanish, or French then component is a best way to make it.

 

2) Create different component for each language and call the components in visualforce email template and rendered it based on user country.

@Shiv Shankar,

 

Components can be used when you think the same functionality can be used elsewhere in other pages. As classes can have utility classes, pages can use components. They are nothing but for generic usage.
