Not sure if I am posting my query in the correct section??

My mum has a 2007 fiesta zetec in Colorado Red. Not long after getting the car some idiot scraped along the corner of the bumper.
The corner of the bumper was painted and 3 years on it was repainted as the paint had faded. Two years on and exactly the same thing is happening.
We really look after the car and it has been regularly washed, polished and waxed to keep the paintwork in tip top condition.
It is really annoying having this area that the colour of the paint is changing.

Can anyone advise on what the problem might be and will it need to be painted yet again?

At the moment it is not too bad can see it progressively getting more noticeable.
