There is an exponential increase in competition these days, does this lead to rivalry?

Con

According to Cambridge dictionary,rivalry is a situation in which people, businesses, etc. compete with each other for the same thing, while competition is a situation in which someone is trying to win something or be more successful than someone else. So basically competition is the same thing as rivalry, they are just different words with the same meaning.
It is wrong to say that increasing competition leads to rivalry, because they are the same thing.
If you interpret competition as a more positive thing and rivalry as a more negative one, competition does not always lead to rivalry. There is always competition in a society, people compete for job opportunities, students compete for entering better schools or colleges, companies competing to earn more money. But competition does not mean that they are rivals. People still make friends with others because they understand that there is something called win-win.
