pg_basebackup is single-threaded and the compression is pretty
CPU-intensive.  You could try reducing the compression level, but that
will make the backups larger, of course.  Also, there's a limit to how
far that will get you- once you get to "no compression", that's just as
fast as pg_basebackup can run.

If you're interested in a backup tool which can operate in parallel, you
might want to look at pgbackrest.
