Nginx is supporting single vendor for IP geolocation right now.

It is good if we can support IP2Location and IP2Proxy BIN database as well. They are from the same company and provide free LITE database for public.

IP2Proxy provides accurate proxy detection that we would like to use in the nginx level.

First of all, nginx does support vendor-agnostic geolocation information via the geo module. I've never tried ip2location myself, but likely their CVS databases can be easily converted to nginx format, either using contrib/ script or something similar.

Further, ip2location seems to provide their own module for nginx, see here.
