That is a line that goes to the power steering pump. If the leak is coming from the line, it means there is a hole, tear, or other issue with that line, and under pressure it is leaking. It will need to be replaced. Cant be repaired, has to be replaced.

It just like the belts. Eventually, they'll wear down. Something you really can't avoid.
