A ProductType element can appear in the result of a search for products.

For this to happen you need to modify the configuration by adding ses_product_type to the product list or product search.

use_display_in_product_list_flag enables or disables the use of the productType flag when displayed in product search and product list.

Additionally, a Product Type indexes all data from its products. You can disable this using the following configuration:

    siso_search.default.cp_to_product_type: false

Disabling this feature results in quicker indexing but product data is not indexed alongside Product Types.

Search results display Product Types using the EshopBundle/Resources/views/Catalog/listProductTypeNode.html.twig template.
