This paper provides an empirical study of competition in the Russian banking market and includes the survey of existing methods for assessing the market competition level. The analysis was performed using the Herfindahl - Hirschman index and Panzar - Ross model. Based on the panel data on a sample of banks (covering more than 85% of total bank assets), it was shown that Russian banking sector is stable in the state of monopolistic competition. Moreover, there was found an evidence of the theoretical assumption, in accordance with which the dynamics of the degree of competition is related to the structure of the market, specifically with the level of concentration in the hands of the leading players. In addition, the significance of scale factor and the state type of ownership for non-structural evaluation was revealed.
