Abstract: Turkish banking sector, following the crisis year of 2001, went through a fast recovery period. Reduced profits during the crisis period began to increase again and the Turkish banking sector attracted many foreign investors. While the number of foreign firms in the sector and their shares has increased, the first five banks concentration ratio (CR5) which is theoretically expected to decrease has also increased. In this study, we investigated the efficiency-competition relationship for the Turkish banking sector using Panzar and Rosse (1987) model over the period of 2002-2007. The results show that competition is high in the sector related mainly to the fact that the number of efficient banks is high in 2005 and 2006 compared to the other years. For the rest of the years in this period, it is observed that the level of competition has decreased in parallel with a decline in efficiency scores.
