Most of the world's natural rubber is grown in the Far East, primarily Indonesia and Malaysia. Although natural rubber still accounts for some of the rubber used today, synthetic rubber is used more widely. Synthetic rubber can be produced at a cost that makes it competitive with natural rubber, and synthetic rubber has more applications. For example, some synthetic rubber has superior air retention, an important consideration in the manufacturing of tires and many other rubber products.
