In Magento 2 proposed to use service layer for this. Try use \Magento\Catalog\Model\ProductRepository::getById method to get product by id

    You should use \Magento\Catalog\Api\ProductRepositoryInterface::getById instead. Commented Feb 11, 2018 at 16:38

On top of others answers, I highly suggest using the following service contracts methods:

  • \Magento\Catalog\Api\ProductRepositoryInterface::getById : to load a product by id
  • \Magento\Catalog\Api\ProductRepositoryInterface::get : to load a product by sku

Magento 2 recommends to use Factories for loading all Models. Here is how you should do it:

  1. Above your class add this line:

    use Magento\Catalog\Model\ProductFactory;
  2. Now create class property:

    protected $productFactory;
  3. In your constructor, add dependency:

    public function __construct(
       ProductFactory $productFactory
    ) {
       $this->productFactory = $productFactory;
  4. Now load product as below:

    $_product = $this->productFactory->create()->load(<product_id>);
  • there is no class \Magento\Catalog\Model\ProductFactory in Magento 2.1.7 Commented Sep 10, 2017 at 16:44

    Most factory classes don't exist in the module. They are generated in var/generation to instantiate classes using the object manager. You should not use factories to load products anyway. Use \Magento\Catalog\Api\ProductRepositoryInterface as suggested by others. Or at the very least use Magento\Catalog\Model\ProductRepository::getById($id)

  • Using ProductRepository does not create new objects, such as using a factory does Commented Jul 6, 2018 at 12:34

The more Magento way of achieving this, although it's hard to tell since they most places throughout the core code do it differently is to use the product repository.

use Magento\Catalog\Model\ProductRepository;

protected $productRepository;

public function __construct(
   ProductRepository $productRepository
) {
   $this->productRepository = $productRepository;

public function getMyProduct($productId)
    return $this->productRepository->getById($productId);

  • there is Marketplace issue with using productRepository in Magento 2

for this you must use below

use \Magento\Catalog\Model\Resource\Product\CollectionFactory

$prod_id = "Your product id goes here";
$om         =   \Magento\Framework\App\ObjectManager::getInstance();
$pdata =   $om->create('Magento\Catalog\Model\Product')->load($prod_id);

I have fetch product details using function in product view page like below.

Here Sm/Sawyer is my theme.

$_config = $this->helper('Sm\Sawyer\Helper\Data');
$productId = $this->getProduct()->getId();
$name = $this->getProduct()->getName();
$stock1 = $this->getProduct()->getQty();
$price = $this->getProduct()->getPrice();

  • Not helpful - just confusing Commented Aug 10, 2017 at 10:15
  • Explain your answer, and where is this code defined? $this->getProduct() as this is responsible to bring the product object.
