What are the benefits of using ferric iron supplements over ferrous iron supplements, if any?

I read that ferrous iron supplements are more easily absorbed than ferric iron supplements. So why are ferric iron supplements created and why would I choose them? Are there any benefits to ferric iron supplements?

    Ferric iron supplements are cheaper to make, have a longer shelf-life, and most people don’t know the difference in bio-activity of the two iron oxidation states.

    There are benefits to the manufacturer and seller, but none to the consumer.
