Folding Tyres vs Non-Folding Tyres

Aside from the ability to fold them, what are the pros and cons of folding tyres?

Recently bought a new tyre (Schwalbe Durano Plus), it comes in folding and non-folding versions. Wasn't sure what the difference was, and I don't need to fold it, so I bought the non-folding one as it was cheaper (£30 vs £33). Wondered if I'd missed something - I would have thought it rare to carry a spare tyre with you, so folding tyres seems like a bit of a niche thing.
