Rigid foam insulation has a number of advantages; while it's not a perfect insulation material for all jobs, there are a many situations in which it's the ideal insulation.

Advantages of Rigid Foam Insulation:
Rigid insulation has a high R-value per inch, so it’s a practical solution for a high R-value where space is limited.
Disadvantages of Rigid Foam Insulation:
They can’t be retrofitted into existing walls without removing the drywall, and are susceptible to the same air-leakage problems as fiberglass batts and blankets. They need to be meticulously installed to limit gaps and air leaks, and they’re slightly more expensive than alternatives.
