The aim of this paper is to investigate the level of competition in the Polish banking sector. The analysis of concentration ratios and competition measures showed that as a result of the consolidation process, the level of competition in the Polish banking sector decreased. Moreover, it was pointed out that despite the generally favorable situation, the regulatory requirements observed in recent years are a significant challenge for banks in order to maintain their competitive position on the market. In addition, it seems that the greatest challenge now is the inability to reconcile pressure on short-term profits along with long-term development strategies.(original abstract)
