Given the relatively small hadronic interaction cross section, $\phi$ meson production provides a unique and complimentary method for exploring the hot and dense medium properties created in the relativistic heavy ion collisions. PHENIX measured $\phi$ production in a wide range of transverse momentum and rapidity in many collision systems. This talk will focus on the $\phi$ measurements at forward and backward rapidities in p+p, p+Al, p+Au, d+Au, $^3$He+Au, Cu+Au collisions in the PHENIX experiment at RHIC.
