Summary/Abstract: The purpose of the paper is to analyse the relations between performance and structure in the banking market. The paper contains a theoretical definition and overview of approaches for competitive hypotheses testing. There have been used several methods to estimate the performance and concentration in the American banking market between 1966 and 2013. The results served as a basis for competitive hypotheses testing. The presence of the Structure-Conduct-Performance hypothesis and Efficient Structure hypothesis was verified by means of an estimate of regression models for panel data. Positive relations between the selected performance indicators and absolute concentration as well as between efficiency and market shares of the analysed banking sectors were estimated.
