I think seeing ideas already existing may be helpful. It validates market demand for the idea you're considering. Depending on market saturation, however, it can be a bad thing. It would be up to you to determine if there is "room" for another competitor, based on market growth rate, the degree to which existing competitors have chinks in their armor, and other factors. As @NMdad said, skewing value is the key to capitalizing on the competitors' deficiencies.

A lot of the big successful companies that are around today were not the first to market, just find a way to do something better.

Find a need that isn't filled. Then search for ideas that solve it.
