    In free market economies, economic efficiency can be provided by best combination of source in production and by best distribution of goods and services in consumption. In such economies, the mechanism which provides the aforementioned efficiency is the competitive market structure. When the markets in the world are examined, it is usually seen that there are monopolistic competition and oligopolistic market structures, which occur between perfect competitive markets and monopolistic markets. The most frequent methods of determining market structures are M – Firm Concentration Ratio and Herfindahl – Hirschman Index. By the help of the mentioned methods, the market structures aredetermined by the interaction between concentration degree and market structures. In this study, it is aimed to determine the market structure of Turkish cement sector, by the help of the M – Firm Concentration Rate and Herfindahl – Hirschman Index analysis methods which are used to calculate income, cost and amount of cement production of cement sector firms.
