The asynchronous method call is a mechanism in which control execution returns directly to the next statement without waiting for the method operation execution. Every asynchronous call is associated with a dedicated thread. IIS has a limited number of application thread pools (default 5000 per CPU). IIS can handle that number of concurrent request at a time. So if you have a situation where you expect a large number of concurrent requests in a single application, asynchronous method call will be a good practice. Where synchronous call executes by occupying 5000 threads, asynchronous can perform the same task with only 50 available threads.
