This is a question I asked myself recently when a client requested this new fangled PWA nonsense D'Oh! | :doh: . What does it actually mean, and why would you want it.

Turns out, it's actually pretty cool OMG | :OMG: and let's you do all kinds of stuff like support your webapp working while it's offline or in bad network reception, push messaging, camera and location access, etc.

Of course, these technologies are not called PWA, but they fall under the PWA umbrella, ie, Progressively support advanced features without requiring them for your app to work. Where the term then comes from is you write a web app, and then add stuff like offline caching, location awareness, media access in such a way that the app works to some degree at least even if the browser it's viewed from doesn't support those features.

Check out Google's work on this for some excellent examples and explanation (with a top notch framework to boot)
