South African Coffee industry, has it grown since 2003?

Over the past year or so I have hear a lot of hearsay. This hearsay claims that the coffee industry in South Africa is grown at a rapid rate.

After here this for the nth time I thought I would look at the real facts. Is the industry growing? So I found this site:

http://www.indexmundi.com/agriculture/ and they had info on South Africa, and yes there is growth, but it is marginal. 38% growth in ten years is a small amount. In the same period I population has grown from about 44 million to about 50 million that is around 14%.

So is this growth? You be the judge, it is growth but nothing to get excited about and hash tag and jump up and down about.
