Question about English (US)

These factories have displaced tourism as the country's largest source of foreign exchange.

Q. I found that the meaning of "displace" is to replace things, but in the example sentence above has "as" followed by the verb. So I'm not sure about the meaning of the sentence.

Maybe... The tourism of the country wasn't considered as a big cash cow, but these factories has changed the trend???

"As" is often followed by that verb??

Twisting the knobs moves a stylus that displaces aluminum powder on the back of the screen, leaving a solid line. 

Q. "Displace" means to move in this case, right?
