Abstract

This paper empirically estimates the technical efficiencies (TE) of Islamic banks compared to conventional banks in deposit mobilizations and loans production for 2010. This analysis uses the stochastic frontier production function. Estimates of the mean TE of Islamic banks and conventional banks for loans are 59.6 percent and 62.8 percent respectively, and for deposits are 0.61 and 0.60 respectively. Parametric tests, test, Satterthwaite-Welch t-test, Anova F-test, and Walch F-test, indicate no statistical evidence of significant differences between the TE of Islamic and conventional banks. The competitive market structure for loans and deposits markets, evidenced by the Herfindahl-Hirschman Index of less than 400, provides an explanation for the equality of mean TE between Islamic and conventional banks.
