Abstract: The Russian banking sector is strictly regulated by the Central Bank of Russia to ensure the stability of the financial system. Launched in 2013, the revocation of licenses from banks for too risky lending policies, money laundering and suspicious transactions led to a sharp reduction in market participants. On the one hand, this has led to an increase in the stability of the Russian banking system, and on the other hand, to an increase in the monopolization of the industry, which may lead to a drop in the efficiency of the sector. The work evaluates the current concentration of the Russian banking sector and determines the market structure of this market. To do this, a systematic approach to the analysis of the sector was applied, the dynamics of key concentration indices was 2 analyzed, and the Panzar-Ross industry monopolization indicator was calculated. The results obtained (high concentration indexes and low Panzar-Ross market power) indicate the presence of a "tough oligopoly in a competitive environment" in the sector.
