What pickleball has done is that there is there is a pro tour that pays pros to play and have video coverage and commentary. They make money from amateur entry fees and brand sponsorships (pickleball, pickleball health related products, and now some bigger non-pickleball brands like Bubly). There is also now a team based event several times a year with big name athletes buying into teams like Kevin Durant and Nick Kyrgios
Basically, there would need to be a super rich/powerful person that has the initial capital to start a "pro" league like they have in europe or japan. Then once a critical mass of interest is created, get brand sponsorships for advertising to perpetually support it
Currently, there is just one off table tennis tournaments and nationals. Some actually do have decent prize money, but there is no established "pro tour" or "team league" that would be necessary to take table tennis' popularity to the next level.
