Apache Parquet files also convert nicely to the apache arrow data format which is useful for columnar analytics. big data sets can be stored in multiple parquet files.
A CSV file can be opened by a lot of different applications, but they do not have very good compression on disk. This means that data stored in the csv file format usually takes up more disk space than the same data stored in parquet files.
