Subject. The article addresses availability of resources, institutional environment, scientific and technical potential of enterprises in various industries.
Objectives. The purpose is to classify enterprises by type of innovation strategy.
Methods. We employ methods of horizontal and vertical comparative analysis of data series.
Results. The study established that proactive enterprises showed a significant increase in revenue and profit for 2011–2022. For all types of enterprises, R&D and development is unprofitable. For proactive businesses, the risk of business liquidation is 36% lower than for other businesses.
Conclusions. Multilateral institutional arrangements in the form of sectoral transactions are an effective tool for disseminating proactive behavior among enterprises.
