You are a startup.

Explanation:

I often start as an idea and then become a problem solved

A startup generally starts with a vague idea to approach a problem, and if it works out successfully, it solves a problem as expected.

There are many of me now but only the most unique and useful of my kind are lucrative

There are a lot of startups throughout the world. But only the unique or useful ones will prevail, rest will perish (Darwin everywhere!)

You are:

Books.

"I often start as an idea and then become a problem solved."

I think of something and then write it up - it gets published.

"There are many of me now but only the most unique and useful of my kind are lucrative."

Lots of books, some mediocre, some brilliant!
