It is a simple case of modifier. "A maturing and increasingly lucrative market" is property of Australia and hence should modify Australia.

Only B does it cleanly.

C. Increasingly maturing as a lucrative market, Australia, in the last decade, has drawn enormous foreign investment, - Wrong placement of Adverb changes the original intent. Hence Incorrect.
D. As a maturing and increasingly lucrative market in the last decade, Australia has drawn enormous foreign investment. - Changes the original intent. Hence Incorrect.
E. In the last decade, Australia, a maturing and increasingly lucrative market, has drawn enormous foreign investment thereafter - Use of THEREAFTER leads to Redundancy. Hence Incorrect.
