I have created a database in Dec, 2012 now the size of database is 1 TB. Now we want to add more resources but before this we want to know that last 1 year what is the size of DB in each month.

If you are performing regular backups,this might give the database backup sizes moth wise
[database_name] AS "Database",
DATEPART(month,[backup_start_date]) AS "Month",
AVG([backup_size]/1024/1024) AS "Backup Size MB",
AVG([compressed_backup_size]/1024/1024) AS "Compressed Backup Size MB",
AVG([backup_size]/[compressed_backup_size]) AS "Compression Ratio"
FROM msdb.dbo.backupset
WHERE [database_name] = ''
AND [type] = 'D'
GROUP BY [database_name],DATEPART(mm,[backup_start_date]);
