Grip and rolling resistance mainly as tubless tyres are far more supple, I run mine at 20psi is this muddy weather and the difference is notable.

Thanks but surely if there is increased grip, the rolling resistance will be higher? That can't be an advantage?

You can't have it both ways! Tubeless allows lower pressures & more grip without the risk of pinch punctures. Pump the tyres up hard to get less rolling resistance but less grip too, tubeless or not. Tubeless also reduces overall wheel weight slightly but requires more maintenance as the sealant won't last forever. You still need to carry a spare tube in case the sealant can't cope.
Will this fit my bike I have 2.2 atm but wondering if it would work
