Using the more restrictive U.S. definition of industrial robots, the following chart compares the relative positions.

The most optimistic estimates for U.S. production in 1980 is 1,500 and for U. S. installed robots 5, 000 but even if this estimate were correct the U.S. position is hardly altered.
