This question is too basic; it can be definitively and permanently answered by a single link to a standard internet reference source designed specifically to find that type of information.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

I'm afraid proofreading is off topic, as explained in the faq. – Matt E. Эллен Nov 7 '12 at 10:27

Yes, it's grammatical. If it's your sentence, you can rewrite it as An understanding is seen as vital because of the increasing pace of the integration of the world's markets. This seems to me to be a bit smoother and less stilted.
