I felt that the conclusion in this set of arguments is that "there is little room for growth in the carpet market".
Although the word "thus" typically introduces a conclusion, I thought that the author used it in the context of providing the last premise that carpets companies will be able to provide market share only if they buy competitors. If this sentence is placed at the beginning of the paragraph, it will follow that the conclusion will have to be that there is little room for growth in the carpet market.
Could you clarify this?
