I am writing some sentences describing the diagram below. From my perspective, the GDP resembles a bit like a curve (exponentially growing) rather than roughly a straight line.
Is there a particular word/adjective that explains the GDP is growing slightly exponential, something like "the growth of global GDP is ___".
This is my present writing:
The shape of the accumulated global GDP slightly deviated from a linear trend (straight line). The accumulation tended to grow at an exponential rate.
