As far as I know, Formatters in ASP .NET Web API plays an important role, when the request comes to the server, depending on the media-type, determines which formatter has to be used to parse the request and assemble the data into appropriate format as response.
The formatters is used to receive the complex type request.
Then you could read the body and populate the model.
The custom binder is only used to populate the model.
Normally, if we want to receive the special request ,we will use formatters.
If we don't want to receive the special request ,we will use custom binder.
More details, you could refer to below article.
