If the side-chain's security if compromised, it is not going to affect the security of main-chain.
A side-chain can be inter-operable with the main-chain and other side-chains.
A side-chain can be designed to have its own token, own consensus protocol, own wallet etc.
With side-chain concept scalability is significantly improved. Some of the blockchain with the provision of side-chains can scale up to millions of transactions per second.
A side-chain can be able to interact with different cryptocurrencies.
Developers can go for beta testing of software upgrades in side-chain before implementing the same for main-chain.
