Local Profile is restricted to a particular computer system you log on.

Roaming Profile is stored on a server and can be used to logon on any system within the network of the server.

Local profile is stored in a local system (local database ) where as you can login in that particular system only.
Roaming profile is created in a domain controller ( centralised database ) so that you can access any where within the network

A roaming profile follows users from computer to computer. A mandatory profile is nothing more than a roaming profile to which the user has read-only access. The only real difference between the two types of profiles is that a user can make changes to a roaming profile, but not to a mandatory profile. Any changes a user makes while logged in with a mandatory profile are gone the next time the user logs in.
