In the literature, there is a discussion on the importance of the spatial proximity to the user in the context innovation activity. The aim of this paper is to determine whether the innovative activity in Mazovian’s industrial system is a consequence of close interactions (local and regional), or perhaps conditioned by the imperative of functioning on the national and international market? Main hypothesis was to claim that on the current development level of Mazovian’s economy system, the relationship between the range of sales and innovation activities are different from those in the more developed countries. Empirical studies was created in 2012–2014 as a result of the systematic collection of questionnaires filled by industry enterprises (951 questionnaires). Methodical analysis was based on the theory of probability – probit modeling. Local and regional environment is not conducive to stimulating innovation activity, but national spatial is. Highest intensity was observed only when the company has been working on the international market.
