at the rate chinese cubers and young prodigies are improving, sub-5 avg is basically guaranteed. I think maybe sub-4 is maybe possible if these chinese cubers could combine tymon efficiency with their insane 12+ tps. also a sub-3 single will happen sooner or later when a top level cuber gets the luckiest scramble ever.
I doubt it because the efficiency takes more thinking and more planning, which they do not do too much of. I don't think Yiheng Wang, Ruihang Xu, or Yezhen Han don't even do COLL. If they somehow figure out a way to combine those then sub-4.5 is definitely possible but I don't think they will get under that with just their tps. 60 moves/12tps = 5 seconds, but 48/12tps = 4 seconds, and I don't think they get sub-50 move solutions without a skip. On Ruihang's 2.68 he didn't stop to recognize the WV, which would have saved him 3 moves and most likely a sub-2.6. It is little things like that which will hold them back. Not saying they aren't rapid, but they probably won't be too efficient in the near future in my opinion.

Yezhen Han did keyhole and several xcrosses on his AsR avg https://speedcubedb.com/r/5152. He is more efficient than Ruihang.

I wonder if cubing would be even more popular in the future or is it going to have a small but developed community. (I hope you get what I mean) It would be nice for it to become more popular in some countries.
Yes cubing still has to reach out to 90ish countries. Most of the northern Africa has had no official or even unofficial cube competition. There is a lot of scope for outreach once the pandemic ends.
