I don't think using layout you will easily add this block after price section.I guess that you are trying to add this block to every product

and, using Plugin on the method getProductPrice() and add a block after Price section on listing section.

So. create Around plugin on the function getProductPrice() and your block output HTML to this function.

The di.xml file in your module declares a plugin for a class object:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
    <type name="Magento\Catalog\Block\Product\AbstractProduct">
      <plugin name="add_custom_block" type="My\Module\Plugin\AddCustomBlock" sortOrder="1" disabled="false" />

Plugin Class:


namespace My\Module\Plugin;

class AddCustomBlock
    public function afterGetProductPrice(
        \Magento\Catalog\Block\Product\AbstractProduct $subject,
        \Magento\Catalog\Model\Product $product
        $customBlockHtml = '';
        $name = 'banner_category_ptk_' . $product->getId();
        $customBlock = $subject->getLayout()->getBlock($name);
        if (!$subject->getLayout()->getBlock($name)) {
            $customBlock = $subject->getLayout()->createBlock(
                ['product' => $product]

        if ($customBlock) {
            $customBlockHtml = $customBlock->toHtml();

        return $output . $customBlockHtml;
