Abstract: This study analysed the innovation dynamics of the Brazilian industrial sector using information published by the Brazilian Institute of Geography and Statistics in the latest edition of innovation survey - PINTEC - from 2012 to 2014. Information was used to analyse innovation indicators, namely types, novelty degree, established partnerships and interactions, as well as governmental incentives. The aim was to provide a macro and updated diagnosis of innovation scenario in Brazil and build reflections for further studies. This is an exploratory analysis; thus, we used descriptive methods for data presentation, through analyses, figures, and tables. The results show that innovation of Brazilian industrial enterprises concentrates mainly in the acquisition of machinery and equipment, innovations that already exist in national or global markets, interactions for the innovative process with suppliers and government support for financing the acquisition of machines and equipment.

Keywords: Brazil; innovation; industry; PINTEC.
