The Wikipedia has the following information about this codepoint:

The greater-than symbol is used in various operations that usually pertain to work being done mathematically or with a programming language. The symbol looks similar to a sideways V and has been used in recorded literature as old as the 1560s. Generally, the symbol is used to show inequality between two numbers or expressions. In mathematics, if there are two numbers being looked at as an inequality, the greater-than symbol usually goes in between the two and symbolizes that the first number is greater than the second number (For example: 4 > 2 or 102 > 100). There are other combinations of the greater-than symbol and the 'equals' symbol or the greater-than symbol beside another greater-than symbol that are also used mathematically and computationally.
