While PLA is stronger and more rigid than ABS, it is also very brittle and not well suited for engineering / commercial use. ABS, on the other hand is tougher, lighter, not brittle, and has better temperature resistance than PLA, so is well suited for many entry-level commercial / engineering applications.
