Sigma and pi bonds are significant because they can be utilized to predict how molecules behave by providing you with the shape of the molecule.

For a more in-depth analysis of your question, I would take a look at this article:
https://brilliant.org/wiki/sigma-and-pi-bonds/
Understanding the difference between sigma and pi bonds is important in understanding the molecular orbital theory, which will in turn help you with structural and orbital analysis. A few key differences highlighted on the referenced website are: the strength of bonds, extent of overlap, and orientation of the overlap. There are also quizzes provided that should help test your knowledge! Hope this helps.
