There are many advantage of SCTP over TCP but in summary we can summarize the advantage of SCTP over TCP in following 4 buckets

       Features                         TCP     SCTP
multi-streams support                    No     Yes
multi-homing support                     No     Yes
preservation of message boundaries       No     Yes
unordered reliable message delivery      No     Yes

Few small points are SCTP provide better performance as compare to TCP, chunk bundling allowed in SCTP while in TCP its not. Four way handshaking is there in SCTP which stops denial of service attacks etc...

But despite everything TCP is more widely used and accepted protocol as compare to TCP.....

SCTP supports multi-homing which TCP doesn't support.
