I would go with D.

I felt that in this question the usage "as competing companies" was wrong. It did not match with the rest of the sentence. Therefore I eliminated options B and E.

Between A,C,D. C was def wrong because I felt it was comparing different things. Between A and D I though the use of Unlike was more appropriate than the usage to Whereas. Hence D.

Only choice B is concise and uses the correct comparison.

A uses 'more established industries' which is ambiguous...this can mean more industries that are established or more advanced industries.

C,D and E are out because of wrong comparison.

Looks like (B) to me.

But in A and B, is 'they' correctly referring to "lines of competition" or can it refer to industries as well??

for me the answer is A

Narrowed it to A & B, but B is out because of 'as competing companies one day may be partners the next' is not correct.
