will database size increase 10X if 10X more products?


I currently have 60,000 downloadable product pdfs in drupal commerce and my site's database size is 1.4GB. I eventually will have 600,000 downloadable products on the site. Each pdf is same produc type but different product. Will the database be 14GB (10 times larger than current database size?)

You should run cron on regular basis, to make it clean the cash tables.
The size of the database should not harm, as long as the provider supports it.

After most things in Drupal are handled via the database, additional products will only be little more.

But, yes - your database will be growing.
