Some articles on growth:

Stranski–Krastanov Growth - Modes of Thin-film Growth
... The growth of epitaxial (homogenous or heterogeneous) thin films on a single crystal surface depends critically on the interaction strength between adatoms and the surface ... While it is possible to grow epilayers from a liquid solution, most epitaxial growth occurs via a vapor phase technique such as molecular beam epitaxy (MBE) ... In Volmer–Weber (VW) growth, adatom-adatom interactions are stronger than those of the adatom with the surface, leading to the formation of three-dimensional adatom clusters or islands ...

    We already have the statistics for the future: the growth percentages of pollution, overpopulation, desertification. The future is already in place.
