One reason is geographical restrictions and censorship, some content is blocked by the government in certain areas, as in China and the Middle East. If you can hide your real IP address and make it look like you're browsing from another area, you can circumvent these restrictions and view sites Blocked websites, private companies often secure their content geographically, making them unavailable in certain countries.

You can obscure the path, although you can not hide. Your ISP acknowledges specifically who you are. And everyone in the chain connecting you and anywhere else also knows the IP address assigned to you by your ISP. It is in the server logs. They HAVE to remember your address to get data packets to you.  What you CAN do is go within a proxy server. A proxy is a form of a translator.
