We consider a random dynamical system in which the state space is an interval, and possible laws of motion are monotone functions. It is shown that if the Markov process generated by this system satisfies a splitting condition, it converges to a unique invariant distribution exponentially fast in the Kolmogorov distance. A central limit theorem on the time-averages of observed values of the states is also proved. As an application we consider a system that captures an interaction of growth and cyclical forces: of two possible laws, one is monotone, but the other is unimodal with two periodic points.
