Yes, for sure there is a huge difference, while commercial keys are designed for commercial locks like the ones we see outside malls and shoping centers and residential keys are designated for residential locks like front door locks etc.

Is there a difference between the lock that is used commercially and the one used in residential?

Yes, There is a huge difference in their standard, when we talk about their manufacturing process. According to ANSI, commercial locks should meet some particular standards and these standards are quite different from what are designated for residential locks. Residential locks are usually grade 1 or 2 locks while commercial locks are mostly grade 3

There are actually 3 grades of locks determined by ANSI.

Thanks for this info. But can we use commercial locks for our homes? I thought it must be more secure.

Yes, you just have to look for grade 3 locks, and it doesn't matters whether it is residential or commercial

What do you mean by grade 3 locks? Is it a level of quality or durability? Like how we use the word Class A, B, C on other products?

The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) is a private nonprofit that administers voluntary performance standards for builder’s hardware
ANSI grades reflect three levels of security and durability:
Grade 1 certification – Highest Grade Security The strongest grade ANSI recognizes for any residential or commercial product.
Grade 2 certification – Higher Residential Security Designed to offer excellent security and durability. Used mostly for residential applications and some light commercial applications.
Grade 3 certification – Basic Residential Security The lowest grade provided by ANSI, and the minimal acceptable quality for residential door locks.

Well the grades changes from country to country but if you are a citizen of United states than you should consider grade 1 locks for commercial purposes, so don't get confused with grade 1 or 3 in above comments, it differs from country to country.

Just naming them to help people decide which one they should choose if they are using it on their residence or commercial shop

I would have name them by grade then if you can use it either for residential or commercial. :-)
