    a) with local domain extension , you might gain priority to rank higher in local search engine
    b) gain local visitors trust , local people prefer to view and purchase from local compare to foreign countries
    c) show local business identity and build strong brand name in local market

    Yes, It is beneficial to use country-specific domain name extension. It is a great way to create a global Web presence with a local focus. Advantages of using country specific extensions are:-

    1. Speak to a new market. Create a website with content relevant to the country's language and culture.
    2. Protect your brand. Register country domain names to prevent unauthorized use of your trademarks, brands, and licensed names.

    I myself using .us extension registered from Thewebpole.com.

    What is a Country-Code Domain? ... A country-code TLD (ccTLD) is a domain name signaling that content relates to a certain country. For example a ".au" site is for Australia and ".de" is for Germany. The opposite of a ccTLD is a generic TLD (gTLD).

    A country code top-level domain (ccTLD) is an Internet top-level domain generally used or reserved for a country, sovereign state, or dependent territory identified with a country code. All ASCII ccTLD identifiers are two letters long, and all two-letter top-level domains are ccTLDs.

    Country specific domains are useful if you target a regional audience like for a national company.
    Or a local vendor of business product.
    It is useful when you rely on getting traffic from a particular region or a land.

    Some ccTLDs, such as .co or .io, have an international reputation. In other words, Google equally well indexes .com and .co
