sixfold increase; sextupling; sextuplication
Explanation:
"Sextupling" and "Sextuplication" are pretty formal words (but they don't have anything to do with the word "sex"), so I would stick to the "sixfold increase"; maybe you can also do it by using the verb "to increase sixfold". Unfortunately, you did not quote the sentence in which the word appears, so I do not know how to translate it best.

five-fold increase


Explanation:
Meiner Ansicht nach ist das ein "five-fold" increase. With a five-fold INCREASE you get six times the amount you had in the beginning.
