English expression 'booming' - "Iced coffee sales are booming"

August is the hottest month in Tokyo, and people in Japan are drinking lots of iced coffee!

We often hear the word booming used with business stories, this is because booming can mean:

to become bigger, more successful or to grow quickly.


-This headline means cold coffee (sales) are growing, so many people need ice. 'Ice is hot' means ice sales are also increasing. *Remember hot can also mean popular!

Iced coffee has recently become more popular in Canada (where I'm from) but it has been popular in Japan (where I live now) for a long time. How about where you live? Is iced coffee popular? Do you like it?
