    Hello Shradha

    You can use SOAP API  when you need to create, retrieve, update, or delete records. You can also use SOAP API to perform searches and much more. Use SOAP API in any language that supports web services. For example, you can use SOAP API to integrate Salesforce with your org’s ERP and finance systems.

    SOAP defines a standard communication protocol (set of rules) specification for XML-based message exchange. SOAP uses different transport protocols, such as HTTP and SMTP.

    Hope this helps.

    Adding some points:

    SOAP :The Force.com SOAP API (formerly known as the Force.com Web Services API) lets you integrate Force.com applications that can create, retrieve, update, or delete records managed by Salesforce, Force.com, and Database.com, records such as accounts, leads, and custom objects. With more than 20 different calls, SOAP API also lets you maintain passwords, perform searches, and much more. You can use the SOAP API with any programming language that supports Web services.
