Being induced...super common?

I’m pregnant w my first so excuse me if I sound ignorant with this post.. why does it seem like most women get induced? Is there an emergency always, because that seems rare... also, I see they’re just at the hospital, and the dr comes in and breaks their water, puts them on pitocin... why? I can again see if there’s a problem but alot of the stories just seem like the dr’s are rushing things along.  So I guess my question is, if you were induced is it because there was a problem, or just because the dr said lets induce you (without a reason).
