How To Check If Product With SKU Exists in Magento 2?

How embarrassing it would be for a Magento 2 developer to develop a complete functionality based on the product ID and try to implement it only to realize in the end that it won’t work as the product only does not exist in the first place!!


The easy escape to such a situation is to check if the product with SKU exists in Magento 2! Prior to using the SKU anywhere, you need to check if that product exists in Magento 2 store or not.

If the answer is yes, then only you can use the product SKU for further conditions.

And the programmatic method to do so is as below:

Method to Check If Product With SKU Exists in Magento 2:

namespace Vendor\Module\Helper;

use Magento\Framework\App\Helper\Context;
use Magento\Catalog\Model\Product;
use Magento\Catalog\Model\ProductRepository;

class Data extends AbstractHelper
    protected $product;
    protected $productRepository;
    public function __construct(
        Context $context,
        Product $product,
		ProductRepository $productRepository
	    $this->product = $product;
		$this->productRepository = $productRepository;

    public function productExistBySku($sku)
		if($this->product->getIdBySku($sku)) {
			$this->_logger->info('Product Exist'); 
	public function productExistById($productId)
		if($this->productRepository->getById($productId)) {
			$this->_logger->info('Product Exist');   

Than simply crate Helper class object and call above function like :

protected $helper;

public function __construct([Vendor]\[Module]\Helper\Data $data) 
   $this->helper = $data;


That’s it.

Check if product with SKU exists in Magento 2 with the above code easily.
