In the report is submitted a methodology for valuation of the level of concentration of the market for maritime container transportations. The fundamental measurements, by which the level of concentration is valued, are: number of companies in the branch, market stake of each company, coefficient of concentration, index of Herfindal - Hirschman (HHI), curve of concentration and curve of Lorentz. The methodology has been applied for Georgia by being determined and compared the type of the market in terms of the level of competition for both years- 2018 and 2019. On this basis have been valued also the tendencies for its development.

The biggest increase of its market stake in Georgia is admitting the company EMC. This company transports with 6, 62% more containers to the ports of the country, thereby ranking themselves third as container lines. On the top of the rank, despite 9, 49% less business, remains MSC. The company has a market stake in Georgia at the rate of 45, 10% for 2018 year, compared to 54, 59% for the next year. Maersk remains its second position in Georgia, as well as in Bulgaria, by reporting on an increase at the rate of 1, 42% to 18, 52% for 2018 year from the market in the Black Sea country.

The international pattern and meaning of the maritime transport are undoubted. The study of the condition of market and the organization of work in these large maritime companies is essentially important for improving the work of the Bulgarian water carriers too.
