You can use following code to get any attribute's default value.

    $objectManager = \Magento\Framework\App\ObjectManager::getInstance();
    $productId = 2; // Your Product ID
    $storeId = 1; // Your Store ID
    $product = $objectManager->get('Magento\Catalog\Model\Product')->load($productId);
    $defaultValue = $product->getResource()->getAttribute('your_attribute_code')->getFrontend()->getAttribute()->getDefaultValue();
    echo $defaultValue;
  • You can use your attribute code instead of your_attribute_code.
  • Please make sure you've selected "Used in Product Listing : Yes" for that attribute.

Hope this will helps you!

  • Thanks for your answer. This issue is that date attribute default value is not coming in "add product page" you can see my screenshot. I want default value of date in add product/edit product page. so if default value come in add/edit product page then it will automatically display in front-end also.

  • Yes, I've read your requirements. And Yes, Somehow that is not working with default Magento. So you can use above thing in frontend to get default value of any attribute if not any value assigned for particular product. Commented Oct 19, 2019 at 8:03
  • I've just checked, I set default value in default date attribute field and tried to save without selecting any date there and that is not working. So may be Magento added some restriction for date type attribute here. Commented Oct 21, 2019 at 6:59
